oops, I would have thought so, but others obviously know better than me :-)
(But then, I run ppp as root (bad me!), because I'm a little out of date,

buy a big new hard disk this afternoon, and then update from 2.2.7 to 3.2,
so if you don't all hear from me within a week, you'll know something nasty
happened.. :-( )
