I was talking with the author of FreeDUM. I did have the app set
correctly but I am using the ISDN upgrade which has a new Network Dialup
system (same that comes with Win95 OSR2). The latest FreeDUM does not
know how to tell the new system to hang up. The author is aware of the
bug and is currently in the process of fixing it.
