Description of problem:
When the system boots up again after it crashed for example after a power
failure, adsl-connect establishes the adsl connection as expected and then
exits. So if the adsl connection dies, it will not be reconnected
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an adsl connection with adsl-setup which comes up at boot time and
connect it with ifup pppX
2. Turn off the system by pressing the power button
3. Turn it on again and wait until it boots up
Actual Results: adsl-connect is not running
Expected Results: adsl-connect should be running

me and i must stop the adsl connection before to restart the system.
