PPP startup problems

I'm trying to set up a DSL firewall using 5.3-BETA6 but I'm having a 
problem getting PPP to start automatically.

I'm using basically the same setup that works perfectly on 4.7 but when 
it starts up, I get the message 'Starting ppp as "root"' and then it 
friezes. If I control-C it, the startup continues and I can then run 
ppp manually.

Is this a general problem with 5.3-BETA6?
