S40networking hangs with auto ppp

Bug Description

I get a hang > 5mins presumed infinite when booting Jaunty with the following in /etc/networks/interfaces

auto ppp0
iface ppp0 inet ppp
 provider nildram

removing "auto ppp0" causes the boot to proceed normally
"ifup ppp0" then starts the (dsl) interface and returns quickly
determined that the hang is in ifup -a within the networking script

Maybe it hangs if the ADSL line is not sync'd when ifup is run?

Worked previously in hardy, including timeout if line disconnected.
