[Freeswitch-users] How to break a playback with loops

I am trying to playing back a wav file a few times, and on receiving a
dtmf event, it stops playing the file. The command I sent is:
call-command: execute
execute-app-name: playback
execute-app-arg: <the wav file>
loops: 4
On receiving a dtmf event, I send a break command:
call-command: execute
execute-app-name: break

However, that only breaks one loop of the playback. And I have to press
a dtmf for 4 times to stop the file.
I tried sending 4 break commands all at once. But it didn't work. And
even worse, my program stops receiving dtmfs anymore. My guess is that
the first break stops the first loop, but before the second loop starts,
the following 3 breaks stop something else that I don't know what they
Any help is appreciated.
