Known bug: ppp-2.4.2 prints some messages twice.

Another bug: if you kill pppd before the chat script terminates, it will go
into infinite loop printing "Killed by signal 15, terminating" over and
over again.

Both bugs are not present in ppp-2.4.1.

I don't know the fix, and I think we must warn the readers of the book.
Those who hate those bugs too much must stay with ppp-2.4.1.
