This shouldn't be needed, #175480 contains a short patch that seems to
apply against the package in woody.
Herbert stated in #175480 that this problem was "tripping a lot of
people running 2.4.18 and later".
Is there any problem why an upload of ppp with the patch from #175480
to stable-proposed-updates would cause problems?
