I've heard of more complaints of this. Apparently nothing has been touched
in the ISDN code by this patch, so it must be related to a change elsewhere.
Perhaps the ISS stuff conflicts in some way with the ISDN ppp stuff? Are all
the ISS patches still available? I could try to find where the problem

BTW, apparently (most?) people who use the HiSax 2.0 driver don't have
problems. This in turn raises the question why the HiSax driver is not
included in the patch. It was submitted to Linus many weeks ago, and
the author was dismayed to find it was not included. The HiSax driver
is much more robust and stable than the teles driver currently in the
kernel sources.
