PPP doesn't set the correct interface in 7-STABLE

I'm trying to setup pptpd to enable VPN connections. This worked well in
all versions of FreeBSD prior to 7.
Now, however, the interface in the routing table is incorrectly set to
that of the ethernet card, rather than the appropriate tun interface.
There is a months-old bug report detailing this:
He mentions two workarounds:
there are two way to fix it.
1. use differenet subnet for vpn. Don't use the same subnet for vpn
routing. user-ppp will set the correct routing table.
2. downgrade to FreeBSD 6.2
#2 isn't really an option, and #1 isn't clear to me. I tried a couple of
different configurations and the interface never seems to get set
