I'm baffled as to why there would be a change in behavior when no change to
the environment occurred.  I tend to believe that there had to have been
*some* kind of shift in the environment... either that, or some file became
corrupted in the reboot, or the modem became defective in the reboot.

Either way, and regardless of what the problem is, I would highly suggest
that you upgrade your HylaFAX version to 4.1beta3.  Note that you *will*
need to also upgrade your libtiff version to 3.5.5 or greater.  You may
also need to upgrade Ghostscript, I don't know.  There is an update more
recent than the one listed on the HOWTO.

See: http://www.hylafax.org/howto/install.php#ss2.2

Hopefully this fixes your problem.  If not, then change your SessionTracing
to 0xFFF in your etc/config.<devid> file, respawn faxgetty, and then send
us a log file of a failed fax.
