Reloading the rules is supposed to allow pf to pick-up new interfaces,
which is why it's done after ppp is started. I was wondering if Volker
had a valid reason for thinking there is a problem, or whether he
was speculating from incomplete knowledge.

As regards pf not starting, in another sub-thread you seem to be
saying that the underlying problem was an irregularity in ppp.conf.
ppp.conf is not read until *after* pf starts-up, so can't explain
pf's not starting.
