Right, that was part of the problem (but not all) - thanks! I have to
admit that I really didn't consider this a serious issue (my ADSL
provider does not assign any DNS servers via PPPoE, even when requested
explicitly with those options), so I didn't try much at all.

That's an easy one: you'll have to decrement all the $x variables in
ppp-linkup by one because the MPD manual seems to be wrong about the
parameters passed to the up-script - here's what it says:
script interface inet local-ip remote-ip authname [ dns1 server-ip ] [
dns2 server-ip ]
According to your log entry, the authname parameter is missing, so
that's probably why it didn't work. Could you check if this is indeed
the case and tell me so I can fix it for the next version?
