This is exactly what happens.

I think you are right here. One might test the connection in a different way 
(e.g. wget something from www.d.o). But as you never know how weird the ISP 
setup might be, you might never catch all possible scenarios. So a warning in 
the guide would be better. You may even add a very short notice in the 
success message of the ppp-udeb. 

BTW. My Provider is Arcor Gremany (I think it's still a Vodafone division)

Kind regards
