Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 40585
when ppp-watch receives a sigint during sleep it calls ifup-ppp right before it exits
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:20:47 EDT
Before ppp-watch calls ifup-ppp, it checks what signals have arrived during
sleep. The sigint is not in this list, though ppp-watch can receive it from
parent ppp-watch attached to the terminal, if we press ctrl-c for example.
Therefore ifup-ppp is called when it shouldn't (right before exit).
A very simple patch fixes this.
