When I direct-dial HylaFAX with a handset, HylaFAX answers, I hear it's tone
from IAXmodem, and Asterisk does NOT hang up.

alaw and slin codecs do the same thing.

fax extension:

exten => fax,1,Dial(IAX2/ttyIAX0552/${DNID})

direct extension:

exten => 0552,1,Dial(IAX2/ttyIAX0552/${DNID})

Anybody got a hint?

I cannot help but think that the fax detection has something to do with this.

Remember that fax detection does not even start until after the call is answered in the first place. So you must answer the call in the dialplan - even if you just then play a ringing sound in the background for a few seconds, before then directing the call on into the dialplan.

My guess is that something within Asterisk is not working right when a call is answered by iaxmodem and then faxdetect determines that it's a fax and then attempts to send it to the "fax" extension - only to find that it's the same place, really, but now iaxmodem thinks that it is busy with the call that faxdetect just stole from it.

Faxdetect is a precarious feature - use it sparingly, use it cautiously.
