ip-down.local does not run anymore/ SuSE 10.0

I discovered that from February 24. 2006 the call ip-down.local and the
scripts in /etc/ppp/ip-down.d from /etc/ppp/ip-down (symbolic link
to /etc/ip-up) did not run anymore on my SuSE 10.0 box running as a router
for a DSL-connection to the internet.
But till now I had no time to look after that. I tracked it down to the following:
In /etc/ppp/ip-down in the case-statement
case "$BASENAME" in

the choice

the call to the function

does not return!
Tracked further down into this function I found that the call to the external
/sbin/SuSEfirewall2 start

does not return anymore when ip-down is run with its basename "ip-down".
But It does return if "/etc/ppp/ip-up" is called...

I worked around that for me that way that I put the call to start_firewall
after the calls to ip-down.local and ip-down.d/*

So does someone use the .local-function in ip-down and has (or has not)
similar problems?

Eat, sleep and go running,
