At least in my case: BZZZZT!

pppd 2.3.5 (the newest, compiled and run on 2.1.102 does not connect. It
dies because the LCP packets keep timing out. The EXACT same binary run
on a 2.1.98 kernel (with all the same options compiled in) works
flawlessly. The 2.3.5 pppd is supposed to fix that version string

It also (sometimes, but less frequently) dies in the "chat" phase of ppp
dialing. Has someone been screwing with the serial ports?
