Description of problem:
Init hangs when starting ppp device when both on-boot and demand are specified.
Assuming that it's hanging waiting for something to "demand" that it dial (which
can't happen until after the subsequent init scripts run). We need to be able to
bring up the interface on boot and have it dial on demand as necessary once the
system is up. Diableing the on-boot option works, but requires that the
interface be brought up manually after each boot. We need to be able to support
unattended reboots.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Configure dialup ppp for on-boot and demand dailing
2.Boot the system

Actual Results:  init hangs at the starting interface pppN message

Expected Results:  Init shouldn't hang. Interface should come up on demand,
after booting.

Please verify this with a newer version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or
Fedora Core and reopen it against the new version if it still occurs.

Closing as "not a bug" for now.
