Then I don't know what to say. You can remove the key from the calls
table and pray for the best. Other than that, tell CompuTone to make
thier RADIUS accounting usefull. If you can't prevent duplicate
accounting, how are you going to bill based on it?

Is the trigger the one from the insttrig.sql script? I have seen some
installations with 6.5 where people used the HTML wizard to get a report
from the calls table each morning and it busted the calls trigger.

Compare it to the one in insttrig.sql for delete it and re-run
