Hi Michael,

Sorry to nag you again.
I'm getting close to my deadline and I would like to give our customer 
some feedback on this issue.

Would you be so kind to explain what the issue is with recording rings 
when doing 'new Session(originate_url)'?

As far as I've been able to work out, this statement will only return after
a) the (or some) timeout has expired or
b) the user has picked up

Only in case b) we've got a originated session, that can be used to 
record. However, since the user has already answered, the rings are not 

Is that right?

Cheers, Birgit
