I found the actual source of the problem, still related to SDP.

When Yate responds to the reinvite it stops the stream and replies in the SIP 200 message with

m=audio 0 RTP/AVP 0 3 101

Setting the port to 0 indicates rejection of the media type. This is what causes the client to hang up the call. It is appropriate to leave the port at its original value and set the connection line c=IN IP4 as it does.

So this is the actual bug, but it would also be nice if the SDP responded with a=inactive/sendonly/recvonly attributes also.
