FWIW I've seen a similar thing with PPPoISDN,
[rich at zippy ~]groups
wheel users network
[rich at zippy ~]ls -al /usr/sbin/ppp
-r-sr-xr-- 1 root network 224536 Aug 5 19:16 /usr/sbin/ppp
[rich at zippy ~]grep allow /etc/ppp/ppp.conf
allow users rich
[rich at zippy ~]ppp demon
bash: /usr/sbin/ppp: Permission denied
[rich at zippy ~]
I've never looked at it any further as it's not a problem for me to run
ppp as root as it's a single user box. PPP was installed correctly and is
rich at dynamite.org rich at FreeBSD.org.uk
If that's what they call normal, I'd rather be insane
