It is intended behavior.  To handle voicemail, you could restructure your
dialplan to:

1) set limit_ignore_transfer to false, then transfer to a VM handling
extension.  The act of transfering will reset the limit.

2) For intercept...  you could use uuid_limit_release api.  hmm.. This could
also be used for 1.
