I know that all echo cancelers are supposed to shut down when they hear

session recordings, I have seen both sides trying to send at the same
time (is that a sign of some other bad thing?)

Your statement is not quite correct. G.168-compliant echo cancellers don't respond to the CNG tone at all, and their response to the CED tone varies. Some will completely disable themselves, others (modern and better ones) will continue to operate, but without their NLPs (non-linear processors) engaged.

All FAX modems are half-duplex, but that doesn't mean that echo won't occur. Echo occurs regardless of whether the modems are half- or full-duplex. If you see both FAX endpoints sending modem data at the same time, then yes, you have some other type of problem.
