[Freeswitch-users] Dialing **<extension>

By the way, it appears that the "**<extension>" ringing call pickup feature
is intermittent.  Sometimes it works, sometimes not.  I posted two traces of
the following scenario:

1) 1059 calls 5381
2) 5381 rings
3) 5402 dials "**5381"

In the bad case (http://pastebin.freeswitch.org/12325), all calls disconnect
following above scenario.  In the good case
(http://pastebin.freeswitch.org/12326), 5402 connects to 1059.

Best Regards,

I used to be able to dial "**<extension>" to pickup a ringing call (v.
1.0.5pre9) from a different extension.  Since I upgraded to 1.0.5-20100223,
this no longer works the same.

Is this feature still available under some other star-code?
