Having a desire to look at the ppp_2.3.1 sources, I went to unstable on
ftp.debian.org  and got what I guessed were the appropriate files:
ppp_2.3.1-3.diff.gz, ppp_2.3.1-3.dsc, and ppp_2.3.1.orig.tar.gz.  I stuck
these in a directory, and, after perusing the dpkg-source man page, issued
the command:

	dpkg-source -x ppp_2.3.1-3.dsc

and got this result:

	dpkg-source: error: tarfile `./ppp_2.3.1.orig.tar.gz' contains object 
	(ppp-2.3.1/) not in expected directory (ppp-2.3.1.orig)

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?  I can make no sense of this
