That bit looks suspect...  Never seen that message from pppd before, but
it might have something to do with it.  I had to modify the ppp helper
code when adding CDMA support to grab the remote IP address and set that
as the interface's P-t-P address, otherwise my Sprint cards wouldn't
work.  Previously to this, the interface's P-t-P address was getting set
to the same address as the interface address.

Ultimate fail:

    if (ho->hisaddr == 0) {
	ho->hisaddr = htonl(0x0a404040 + ifunit);
	warn("Could not determine remote IP address: defaulting to %I",


Maybe NetworkManager should trap that magic and replace it with the
interface address like use to happen before.
