on upgrading from 6.2 to 7.2 two problems arose:
(pptp is still the previous one, kernel 2.2.19)

1. pppd did not take the ip address
> ifconfig
ppp0 Protokoll:Punkt-zu-Punkt Verbindung
inet Adresse: P-z-P: Maske: is wrong, the other one is the providers gateway (i think so)

etc/ppp/options needed the entry "ipcp-accept-local"
to get a real ip addr accepted.
(actually i also specified "ipcp-accept-remote" but this should not be

2. ifconfig respects the locale and SuSEfirewall checks for
"addr:" to get an interfaces ip address. which obviously
does not work.
It should work when startet by root (might also fail if ROOT_USES_LANG=yes)

this is for SuSEfirewall 4.5 and 4.6 maybe marc has already fixed it.
(maybe "unset $(locale|sed 's/=.*$//')" would do it.)
