pon oddities - ppp status now works: timing issue

And following up to my remaining problem, it is now solved.
ip-up.local was executing the command that popped up the pppstatus
window too quickly. The ppp link was not completely up yet and so
pppstatus couldn't see it. A "sleep 1" before the command was all
that was needed.

Also, as previously discussed for ip-up.local, the line

export DISPLAY=0.0 <user name>

is critical in ip-down.local. If the user name is ommited, pppstatus
cannot be killed.
