Slow connect on T1 chans between * and legacy PBX

I just set up a T1 between a TE205P dual-span card and my legacy PBX (Definity G3). It’s set up as a straight T1 (not PRI) with E&M wink start. I’m only using Asterisk as a conference bridge. I let all incoming calls across the span default to “s”, do an answer() followed by a call to “meetme”. Everything works perfect except it takes 11 seconds from the time the call transfers out of the G3 until Asterisk does an answer(). The T1 is timed off the G3. Any ideas on why it takes so long for Asterisk to do an answer() ?
