Hmmm...maybe this will help with the problem I've been having too. I've
never been able to get FreePPP to reconnect automatically to my ISP when
the client has completed a block. Maybe rebuilding the connection will
resolve this.

Looking forward to trying the new client on my 8500/120 tonight...thanks
for the efforts, Andrew!
