Yeah, it's a bit of a nuisance, isn't it?! If Mathematica detects 
MacTCP (i.e., assumes a TCP/IP network is present), it looks for other 
copies of itself running on the network. An understandable precaution, 
but annoying when you use PPP via a phoneline. You can either live 
with killing the dialup process twice (Mathematica will run) or use 
the ExtensionManager to disable all MacTCP related stuff.
