I had this problem, too. AFAIK quitting MacPPP explicitly was the only 
workaround. If you want to stick with MMa 2.0, you could try a newer version 
of MacPPP or FreePPP, downloadable at (MacPPP) or any 
InfoMac mirror (FreePPP).
But I rather  think you'd  better get Mma 2.1 or higher, which, 
besides not having this problem, are a lot more stable and capable;-)
