Message ast_msq_queue channel

In all my time using Asterisk, I have never observed the following before:

na01*CLI> channel request hangup Message/ast_msg_queue
Message/ast_msg_queue is not a known channel
na01*CLI> core show channels concise
<other call redacted>
na01*CLI> core show channels
Channel              Location             State   Application(Data)
<other call redacted>
Message/ast_msg_queu s@orig-call:1        Up      Gosub(ATA-lookup,,1)
1 active channel
1 active call
9363 calls processed

For some reason, there is a call called “Message/ast_msg_queue” currently up, hanging at some subroutine (the extension there is CALLERID(num), so the lack of one maybe makes sense). I can’t seem to kill it in the normal way. What does it mean if there is a message queue channel up like this? It’s been like that for several minutes, and it doesn’t seem to count towards “active channels/calls”

channel request hangup all also fails, a restart is required to get rid of it.

It’s a persistent message channel used for out of call text messages. It seems as though your configuration has it such that they are treated like normal calls.
