Well, I have one other suggestion :*)

Search for ``Win98'' in ppp/chap.c and try removing the 
ans[alen] != '\0' test.  It's plausible that M$ have a different bug 
in their 95 implementation....

If this does turn out to be the case, the only option will be to add 
some sort of config option (yeuch!).
