This have worked for me. Never since one of those dreaded messages
linux486:~# cat /etc/ppp/ip-down.d/tor
test -e /etc/init.d/tor2 && /usr/bin/killall /usr/sbin/tor
linux486:~# cat /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/tor
test -e /etc/init.d/tor2 && /etc/init.d/tor2 start
linux486:~# mv /etc/init.d/tor /etc/init.d/tor2
