You didn't. Thanks for the info, it was among the things I tried but 
apparently discarded too early. The route still says ppp0:

    Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref   
    Use Iface   *        U     0     
    0        0 ppp0

...but I am getting pings through now, both from my home server and from 
other workstations on my local subnet.

Now I just have to set up routing so the subnet can 
access other system in my own subnet, but that's another issue altogether.
