Description Alexander Kourakos 2000-10-13 12:27:30 EDT
My PPP connection takes about 50 seconds to finish coming up so 
ppp-watch was always printing "failed, retrying in background" at boot 
even though the connection was going to succeed. I changed 
alarm(30) to alarm(60) on line 490 of ppp-watch.c and all is well.
