The point is that the pppd *was* up, and funcionting.  All packets to
class B and C networks went through, but packets to the two class A
hosts I tried failed until I removed the original default route.

The original default route was the loopback.  I was using the
"defaultroute" option on pppd, and it was working for class B and C
