Submission + - Popular Android distribution Cyanogenmod unable to dial Dutch emergency number (google.com)

GJdeBoer writes: A colleague of mine witnessed an accident last week and came across a rather life threathening bug in Cyanogenmod. Both he and his wife run a Cyanogenmod 10 on a Samsung Galaxy SII and they tried calling the Dutch emergency number 112 and were shocked to find out that the phone did not dial the number but responded with the error message: "Invalid Number". Also clicking on the Emergency button gives the same result.

A little researching brought up the bugreport on code.google.com and apparantly this bug is present since at least July 2012 in both Cyanogenmod 9 and Cyanogenmod 10.
