[ntp:questions] ACTS Modem mode not working in -dev ?

In 4.2.6p5 this worked exactly as advertised...

I've been running in mode 1 (backup) for quite some time, and it's been 
working fine.  That is to say that a call gets made once at startup, but 
by the time the other sources become reachable - no subsequent calls are 
made.  Calls should only been made if all other sources are unreachable.

In ntp-dev-4.2.7p423 - with the same config, calls are made pretty 
frequently.  The reach column 'decays' and I hear the modem fire up.  I 
cannot find any documentation to show me that something changed and my 
config is out of date to run in -dev.  Here is the relevant config:

server mode 1
fudge flag4
phone atdt*70,13034944774 atdt*70,12027621594 atdt*70,17195676742 atdt*70,18083354721

I'd like to keep the -dev code running, as I'm troubleshooting a 
completely unrelated bug.  For now I have mode set to 2 (manual).  I don't 
want the phone company reliving their glory days of 30 years ago with all 
these long distance calls...
