Maybe it won't help you, but I actually never run adsl-start/stop. I 
just run ifup and ifdown (in /sbin), which, in turn, call ifup-pre-local 
and ifdown-pre-local, if they do exist.

I'm more experienced with FC1, where it was slightly different: there 
were ifup-local and ifdown-local (without 'pre'), but I guess it doesn't 
matter much.

Anyway, it works fine for me. I never call any script in /etc/ppp 
directly (I even don't want to have look there).

That's all I can tell you.

Best regards and good luck.
