The ``.1'' is dangerous.  A lot of modems won't recover in less than 
about 3 seconds, so you may be always failing your chat script for 
each ``next'' number.

Enable chat logging and see if this is what's happening.  Your 
expectations are correct though :-)  Give me a shout with your log 
file (``set log debug command chat lcp phase'' would be good) if this 
doesn't work as advertised.
