Can't make outgoing call with the FreeRunner

I received my FreeRunner today. And I have a problem with it: I can't 
make any outgoing call. But I can receive calls.

When I try to do make a call, the application says it's dialing, and 
then close suddenly.  After that, I can't receive any call until I 
reboot the phone.

I flashed 'qtopia-4.3.2-gta02-rootfs-07172049.jffs2' (with appropriate 
kernel) on my phone to see if I would get better results.  Same problem.

I re-flashed 'Openmoko-Freerunner-20080424-om-gta02.rootfs.jffs2' (with 
kernel), did an 'update' and an 'upgrade' with 'opkg', and rebooted the 
phone.  No luck.

Any idea what could be the problem?  Is there a way I could initiate a 
call from command line, to see if I can get some useful error messages?

Could it be an hardware problem?  Or related to my carrier (Rogers in 

I would appreciate any advice you can give me...
