I don't know what caused this for me, or why it works now, but I got this
and then ftp'd the source for it and re-made it on the system. Note: I
_had_ PPP 2.2.0e?? and only upgraded to 2.2.0f, but I recompiled it on the
machine with the new kernel... maybe this is what did it.

Then again, maybe I bumped something else on the way...
