Unable to register extension (duplicates due to extensions_override_freepbx.conf)

    I added a context to extensions_override_freepbx.conf because I wanted the caller to hear a "ring" sound before my IVR picks up. The default IVR setups don't add this so I inserted it. Hey, it works- ok great.

    But I just noticed that during startup of asterisk, a ton of errors get logged about being unable to register extension blahblah because its in use. Is this just "how the override is supposed to work" and safe to ignore?
    Code:

    Another thing I'm seeing is this
    Code:
    [FONT=Courier New][2011-01-14 22:29:41] WARNING[8703] pbx.c: Unable to register extension 'h', priority 1 in 'ext-fax', already in use

    I noticed that there are 2 contexts called [ext-fax] in my dialplan. Not sure how this happened or if it too is normal. I have an [ext-fax] at line 1422 in extensions_additional.conf and another one at line 622 of extensions_custom.conf. Bad? :confused5:
