In 2.1.119 the local IP address from my last PPP dialup connection,
after it has been brought down, still responds to pings.
However, it is gone from the output of /sbin/ifconfig or /sbin/route.
This behavior seems to have started since 2.1.117, where it
I have heeded the Documentation/Changes information.
I noticed this after wondering why a strange host appeared
in the output of xhost (while offline) and couldn't be removed.
