good question....   usually adapter binding order takes care of issues
with different connections trying to take over, but moving "remote
access connections" to the top of the binding order had no effect (and
I'm not even sure if Windows includes PPTP in "remote access
connections", or only dial up stuff).  My Cisco VPN client puts the
DNS servers handed out by the other side on top of the priority list,
but the Windows client doesn't seem to do nor permit that, from what I
can see.
