And something even more different. Dialin ppp connections to my 2.4.pre10
box with pppd version 2.4.0 is successful but uses all available CPU
resources. Load avg's stay around 1.5 with just pppd using resources.

excerpt from top:

107 processes: 104 sleeping, 3 running, 0 zombie, 0 stopped
CPU states: 99.4% user, 0.6% system, 0.0% nice, 0.0% idle
Mem: 255632K av, 238360K used, 17272K free, 0K shrd, 9052K buff
Swap: 191480K av, 0K used, 191480K free 89068K cached

15493 root 18 0 996 996 832 R 0 98.8 0.3 20:48 pppd

This is a dialin and not a dialout connection.
