>Description:
	Scenario:
	- Using user ppp together with ports/net/pppoa (Alcatel speedtouch)
	- pppoa sometimes loses carrier, or gets out of sync (actual symptom:
	  no data received any more)
	- user ppp detects this (via "enable lqr"), shuts down the child
	  pppoa processes, restarts pppoa processes
	- communication commences
	- doing 'pppctl "show ipcp"' immediately leads to the user ppp
	  core dumping, with orphan pppoa processes left behing

>How-To-Repeat:
	Follow the scenario described above

>Fix:
	Not known.
	Suspected that some variable still points at connection data from
	the old session, after the session has already been restarted.
