I am looking for someone who has a working PPP server who can give me
some help.  I have a situation where a route is not being deleted
properly from the routing table when a connection is broken.

Basically, I end up with the following route in the route table:
pppclntthree.Kno link#1             UHL         1        2  ae0

This seems to only happen when the connection is broken while it's
active.  For example, when the client disconnects during a download.

When the connection is up and working, the following two routes exist:
pppclntthree.Kno         UH          1      376  ppp0
pppclntthree.Kno 0:0:94:7:ee:b2     UHLS2       0        0  ae0

After the client disconnects, the second one seems to come partly
down, but it leaves the following:
pppclntthree.Kno link#1             UHL         1        2  ae0

What's going on?  This appears to be a bug, but I don't know if I'm
just configuring it wrong somehow.  If it is a bug, are there any
workarounds?  Is this a known problem?  Shall I send-pr it?
