It appears that the recent changes to libpcap and bpf_filter stuff have
broken pppd. In particular, pppd no longer seems to be able to parse an
`active-filter' expression of the form:
active-filter "udp or (tcp and not tcp port ntp)"
I've had to remove the above line from my /etc/ppp/options file in order
to get pppd to come up. With the above line left in, pppd never even
gets to forking itself into the background.
