Description of problem:
whenever a dialup connection is lost, red hat does not redial to 
reconnect, even though the option to do so is set.

Wether I disconnect manually, or a connection is lost by the ISP 
disconnecting me, the same thing still happens, the "Restore connection 
when lost" option in the Dialup Configuration screen from the Gnome 
desktop, is unselected.  No matter how many times I select this option, 
and how many times I get disconnected, for any reason, it turns this 
option off and does not redial.

I even tried reformatting my system from scratch, and it made no 

This is extremely important for me, since I need to be connected to the 
internet 24/7.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Dial into internet via RH PPP.
2. Get disconnected for ANY reason.
3. It won't redial even though option is set to do so, option is then 
turned off, even though I didn't turn it off.
