  No, the actualy -flush/-fetch would case In-Joy to dial in. In-Joy's dod
works like this.
  Even if the modem hangs up, In-Joy keeps the the ppp0 in the routing
table. When it detects a need to send/recieve data it will dial in, the
only thing on the computer that knows it's not connected with the modem is
Injoy (maybe you if you look) but other then that, everything is still
setup as if it's connected. So netstat would be fooled into thinking
that's connected when it isn't. That would cause a computer do dial in
whenever a block is finished even if your really not connected.
