I think you'll need to find out what the exact message was. If it was
auth_ReadHeader: Short packet header (4 > 0) !
then you're receiving an empty authentication packet. Older (3.0)
versions of ppp would probably happily ignore this. Your best bet is
to ``set log physical'' and send me the output - I should be able to
determine if this is the case.
