I have C2911 with loading c2900-universalk9_npe-mz.SPA.152-4.M5.bin

(but with previous releases situation was same )

I use ССM Version 9.1. in my bundle. I have native phones (6921, 7962) and several SIP DLink gateways. ISP interconnection by SIP.

I have IVR on it, but when I stoped IVR  - situation was same.
