[cisco-nas] AS5300 ISDN problem

I just configured an 8 PRI AS5300 box identically to an existing 4 PRI AS5300
box to replace some older dual PRI equipment (non-Cisco). The version of IOS
is identical between these two 5300's (12.2(2)XA4) yet ISDN customers who
attempt to connect to the 8 PRI box are unable to. I have captured the Q.931
debug output of one of these failing calls below:

1d03h: ISDN Se6:23: RX <-  SETUP pd = 8  callref = 0x121F
1d03h:         Bearer Capability i = 0x8890
1d03h:         Channel ID i = 0xA18382
1d03h:         Calling Party Number i = 0x2181, '7653428252', Plan:ISDN, Type:National
1d03h:         Called Party Number i = 0xC1, '3494202', Plan:ISDN, Type:Subscriber(local)
1d03h: %LINK-3-UPDOWN: Interface Serial6:1, changed state to up
1d03h: ISDN Se6:23: TX ->  CALL_PROC pd = 8  callref = 0x921F
1d03h:         Channel ID i = 0xA98382
1d03h: ISDN Se6:23: TX ->  CONNECT pd = 8  callref = 0x921F
1d03h:         Channel ID i = 0xA98382
1d03h: ISDN Se6:23: RX <-  STATUS pd = 8  callref = 0x121F
1d03h:         Cause i = 0x82E418 - Invalid information element contents
1d03h:         Call State i = 0x08
1d03h: ISDN Se6:23: RX <-  CONNECT_ACK pd = 8  callref = 0x121F
1d03h: ISDN Se6:23: CALL_PROGRESS: CALL_CONNECTED call id 0x507F, bchan 1, dsl 6
1d03h: %ISDN-6-CONNECT: Interface Serial6:1 is now connected to 7653428252 username
1d03h: ISDN Se6:23: TX ->  DISCONNECT pd = 8  callref = 0x921F
1d03h:         Cause i = 0x8090 - Normal call clearing
1d03h: ISDN Se6:23: RX <-  RELEASE pd = 8  callref = 0x121F
1d03h: %LINK-3-UPDOWN: Interface Serial6:1, changed state to down
1d03h: ISDN Se6:23: TX ->  RELEASE_COMP pd = 8  callref = 0x921F

The relevant line that causes me grief is the STATUS packet I get from the
remote ISDN device that seems to indicate error 100: "Invalid information 
element contents". As I said, I have gone over this configuration and it is
very generic, resembling nearly identically example configurations on Cisco's
website, yet ISDN customers just cannot stay connected. Anyone have any ideas?
Addtional configuration information is available upon request.
