I have a kamailio server that sends calls to FS, calls then get routed to a
VOIP provider. This works just fine, but calls dont get billed and it seems
billing is not initialized for the calls at hand

Below is the output for the FS console for such a call :

I did check the active calls and checked billing status it says not
initialized for call, see :

freeswitch at fs-100-151> nibblebill e41ebdb3-eac2-4104-bad2-ed802bb8e26f check

2012-04-10 13:53:44.602951 [INFO] mod_nibblebill.c:759 Can't check -
channel is not initialized for billing!

Unloading and loading mod_nibblebill occurs without any errors, see :

freeswitch at fs-100-151> unload mod_nibblebill
