I already did, one tries everyting when getting desparate. But it is even
without testing this quite obvious that this is not the problem. Afterall,
ondelay is to prevent stalling of the program by a blocking modem,
while I have quite te opposite. My problem is that the command exists
to soon instead of too late.

I think I'll have to conclude that all this leads to nothing. I guess this
means that I just have to remove hylafax and try some other program that
does want to fax on this machine. This all has taken quite some time,
but I don't see anything that might lead to any solution. If anyone
has a real idea that might solve this problem I am happy to try, but I
can't allow myself to put much more time in it. I have to work towards
a solution to my problem (setting up a fax server) and it seems that
hylafax simply isn't going to offer me one.
