Asterisk@home resets manual entries in extensions_additional.conf

Hi guys.

I'm playing with A@H.
I find out that A@H stores the dialplan in extensions_additional.conf.
So, i wrote my basic first extension there.
It was working fine.
THis morning i added another extension thru AMP, and i think it deleted the manual dialplan that i created before.

Is there any wahy to avoid this?
Is there any way to create manual dialplans in A@H?

    AMP rewrites extensions_additional.conf every time you use it.  Kind of a bug, I think.  I don't have the latest version of asterisk@home, nor do I use AMP, but the way they probably set this up is there's an extensions.conf and in there is a statement that includes extensions_additional.conf.

    So changes you make in extensions.conf should 'stick' even if you use AMP.

    Let us know if that works.
