No problems here with 1.1 and PPPoE.  I had 1.0 running, and the vast
majority of the 1.1 beta releases, and now 1.1 final - they all work
better than 1.0 did - 1.0 failed to work properly in the "Allow
override" when the IP was assigned to a PPPoE connection.  There is
definitely email aboot this issue in the lists.

1.1 is fine here.
