Would have been a good idea - the space concern isn't too bad. But I think 
it should be possible to detect if provider was changed, and to prompt
the user for the setup to run if not.

I haven't found this 'Other Strings' screen in pppconfig 1.1 (that's
what slink for m68k currently uses). Will try again with a fresh base
