I wrote a series of scripts to handle this (however a virus infected my 
partition table - am still re-installing), basically it involved creating 
a lock file when the network is up (in the ppp-connect script), and 
removing it in the ppp-off script. Then just check if the file is there 
in the popclient script. If you want my scripts I'll mail them to you 
once I finish re-installing.
