This does raise a question in my mind...

The AGI protocol is: your AGI sends a request (the Rx line) and receives 
a response (the Tx line). 1 line out, 1 line in.

If the 'HANGUP' text can arrive asynchronously, how are you supposed to 
know it has arrived? Poll (or select) on the file pointer?

I don't understand why you can't use the absolute channel timeout. 
Wherever you 'set autohangup x' just set 'TIMEOUT(absolute)=${EPOCH}+x.'

Thanks in advance,
