Your IOS version comes with SRST 3.4, and therefore do not support the new 7961 and 7941. I have put the SRST system administrator guide for both 3.4 and 4.0, you can see that only the 4.0 has the support for your new phones.

Version 4.0 - 12.4(4)XC

Version 3.4 - 12.4(4)T

We have noticed this too - with the right code the phones will register, but you do not get the keyword for the new phones in the limit-dn. I don't know if they default to allowing max of 6 lines to register, or if they follow any limits you set for the 7940/60 phones. Maybe someone from Cisco could explain, I have not been able to find it in any of the SRST doc..
