I've had the same problem on one occasion with an unadulterated 2.3.99-pre6
kernel. On executing "ifdown ppp0" (for the *first* time), the machine
oopsed once, then spewed some more oops-like information and locked up.
Couldn't capture it, sorry. Computer is now in storage whilst the room is
redecorated, so I can't try any fixes for a few days.

PPP is compiled as a module, and usually works fine. Machine is a VESA-bus
AMD 486DX4/120 with a Diamond modem on a serial port.
