Do you run fetchmail with the -d option?

I use the above directories for both PPP and ISDN and never got such a
problem.  I have scripts for fetching news and fetching mail in these
directories and it works fine.

If you really want nothing to be run, delete all the files in
/etc/ppp/ip-{up,down}.d .  You can also rename them to appear as
backup files (~ at the end) as run-parts seems to ignore them (as well
as *.dpkg-{old,dist,new} files).
