It has been shown to work on 1.2.XX. I've not done it.

Because I believe 2.2 was in beta for quite some time before it came out,
and I think Al Longyear only produced it as a stopgap before rewriting
the whole megillah for 2.3.
Obviously this is conjecture from what I've read on linux-ppp. Ask Al
for the definitive answer.

By default 2.2 installs in /usr/sbin, rather than /usr/lib (the previous
default), so you might be running the wrong one.
If you can make what you've done available, I'd be willing to test it.
I've got a known-good dedicated PPP connection.
