This is intentional and by design.

After restarting faxq it must be informed about the modem's availability ("readiness") before it will use it.

Hmm. So under usual circumstances, I presume that it's faxgetty which sends this message?


What's the conventional way to inform faxq of the modem's readiness on systems not running faxgetty?


(Or is it advised that faxgetty be run even when it isn't intended that incoming calls be handled?)

faxgetty usage is almost always recommended. If you don't want it answering calls then set RingsBeforeAnswer to 0.
