OK, if ppp0 goes down (dialup you know) and I restart it, it seems
like I have to bring down the firewall and restart it. Is this
normally necessary, or am I doing something wrong?

Make sure you have the FW_SERVICE_DHCLIENT set to yes in the Network>Firewall>SuSEfirewall2 dection of sysconfig. You can find it in YaST under System>Editor for sysconfig files.

Dial up and FW_SERVICE_DHCLIENT has no relation as when you dial up you
dont get your IP address via DHCP process
