I'm afraid this is a strange combination of a problem in Python, the
Python glib bindings, and/or glib itself. When the ppp process gets
closed, the supervising process (frameworkd in that case) hangs forever.
I have not yet found a way to fix this, and these days I rather put all
my energy into finishing fsogsmd. Patches appreciated, of course.
