I have a solution that I think is as near perfect as it gets. It is very
simple.

The problem: I need NetworkManager for connecting my laptop to wifi and
ethernet. However, it messes me up when I am on PPP.

The solution: kill Network Manager before running pppd and revive it
after, e.g.:

#!/bin/sh
killall NetworkManager
pppd my_isp
NetworkManager

I run the above script whenever I need to connect via PPP. I never run
pppd alone outside of this script.

That gives me a basically 100% correct behavior at all times. If I stop
PPP, or pull out my broadband modem card, pppd stops and NetworkManager
starts and is ready to serve me. When I am on PPP, NetworkManager is not
bothering me with incorrect behavior.

I have been very happy in the last few days and think that it should
work for just about anyone.
