Funny.  On my PowerTower 180e, RC5 v2 for MacOS won't initiate a PPP
connection (or, as some might prefer, tell OT/PPP to initiate a
connection) when it's done with a set of blocks.  Is it possible that some
people are having luck and some aren't?  Different versions of OT,
mayhaps?  I'm running 1.1.2...

I'd hoped to have the client connect when done a set of blocks, and have
OT/PPP disconnect after the connection is idle after a couple of minutes.
But no dice.

So a fix in the next version would be nice.
