Description Enrico Scholz 2001-02-25 12:30:44 UTC
When having an username with an '#' (e.g. the German T-Online ISP has such
names) it will be put into the secret-file without quoting.

Because ipppd interprets '#' as comment-sign all information behind it will
be ignored and authentification will fail.

I suggest to quote the name in /etc/init.d/isdn:178 (and below in current
rawhide):

-                create_option_file "user \"$USER\"" "$1"
+                create_option_file "user $USER" "$1"

It's fixed with internet-config-0.33-1. Thanks.
