Ok, so how long is "quickly" here? During bisection I typically waited ~30 secs
and there was no pppd listed on 'ps aux' when I reconnected it.

I don't know what to say. I believe in you, of course, but I am not
seeing what you expect. For example, after sending the last email
I unplugged it and went back to work until I read this reply of
yours. So I did this,

[mafra@Pilar:5-pts-tree-level]$ ls /dev/ttyU*
ls: cannot access /dev/ttyU*: No such file or directory

which is OK, because the stick was not plugged in all this time. So
then I plugged it and got this,

[mafra@Pilar:5-pts-tree-level]$ ls /dev/ttyU*
/dev/ttyUSB1 /dev/ttyUSB2

And it took a lot longer than 30 secs this time, more than 5 minutes
for sure (and I don't see anything suspect in the output of 'ps aux').

And the fact that is, reverting your commit made things work under
the same testing conditions.

Do you have any suggestions as to what I should do between unplugging
and plugging it back?
