yes.... i used to have this happen under mandrake 8.2, and a restart 
would set things right....

i've tested mwaved under gnome ppp now as well as kppp, and its 
definately not the ppp dialer that has the problem... the problem has to 
be mwave....

i'm still having the same symptoms, the module and daemon loads fine, 
but kppp freezes at 'Initialising modem'. under gnome-ppp i got the 
message 'The ppp daemon died unexpectedly'. theres nothing in particular 
in my logs that show any problems with the driver... logs seem to show 
the driver loading okay....

one problem i have noted - does anyone else get a load of shell script 
spewing up the screen when they do mwaved restart? i had a look at the 
script b(/etc/rc.d/init.d/mwaved) but couldnt see anything obviously 
wrong... there are a lot of echo commands in it tho, it seems to be 
echoing half the script instead of running it....?
