Thank you for a very good bug report; it made it quite easy to find
and fix the bug.  It will be fixed in the next initscripts release.
In the meantime, you can use rp3 or usernet to control the interface,
or you can use
  ifup ppp0
  ifdown ppp0
to bring your ppp device up and down from the command line.
