Modem wedged help?

I have one of our Multitech MT2834ZPX modems configured for adaptive answer
support, having just set this support up last Thursday.  On Saturday, 
after dialing in unsucessfully (see log below--note exit
status of mgetty) the modem was reported
as wedged.  I turned off and turned on the power to the modem this
morning and all is well again.  My questions are:

1. (vague, I know) Why would the modem wedge?  

2. Is there anything else I could have done to restore service besides
power cycling the modem?

3. I'm using mgetty to handle incoming data calls (v 1.0.0)--although
it worked fine for the first two days, could mgetty be part of the problem?

OS:  RH Linux, release 4.1 (vanderbilt), kernel 2.0.27 on an i486

Modem Firmware version (from ATI1 command):  0022

Apologies if this has been dealt with before, but I've been unable to 
access the Hylafax web page since Friday--what's up with that?
