User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.5 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020712

Description of problem:
/sbin/ifup hangs when I try to connect (either through the commandline or
through redhat-config-network, and /var/log/messages reads:
Aug  5 20:04:25 hive pppd[4314]: pppd 2.4.1 started by root, uid 0
Aug  5 20:04:25 hive ifup-ppp: pppd started for ppp0 on /dev/ttyS1 at 38400
Aug  5 20:04:25 hive pppd[4314]: Connect script failed
Aug  5 20:04:26 hive pppd[4314]: Exit.

ifup doesn't return (exit), but keeps trying, and the above message keeps
repeating until I ^C

wvdial still works fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Whoops, handling of --remotename on the command line fell up when we updated to
1.53.  Fixed in 1.53-5 and later.
