Well, the connection is still alive when it happens, I've tried running
fetchmail, which I have no problems with at all, after fetchnews halts,
and it works. I have however a few times experienced that the "ppp daemon
died unexpectedly" Am going to try something else than kppp since it is an
X application, and I need one that'll run from a script.

I'm sorry for being such an ignorant:) But what's MRU and MTU?
