Transfer feature dialing out after one digit

Because some users have requested transfer beep confirmations I’ve
switched our phones over to using the asterisk transfer feature instead
of the built in transfer functions of the phones. While testing it was
working fine, but I changed something in features.conf and suddenly any
time I hit transfer (*2), I can only enter one digit before asterisk
immediately tries to dial that extension.

Features.conf is extremely barebones so I’m not sure where any problems
would come up:

[general]
transferdigittimeout => 3
xfersound = beep

[featuremap]
blindxfer => #
atxfer => *2

Tried change transferdigittimeout to something insanely long like 100,
but still the same thing. I even fully restarted asterisk (just in case
it was some weird fluke that crept in).

This is 1.6.2.17.2. Someone else posted something extremely similar,
though it’s in version 1.8.2.3:
