rp-pppoe GUI execl error message

I have managed to install my DSL thanks to posts on this site (woohoo! ).
I use the rp-ppp GUI - before that I couldn't get it to work, now it does. But however when I press "Stop" on the program, this error message appears:

Error stopping connection:
/usr/sbin/pppoe-wrapper: execl: Exec format error

It would be interesting to know if anyone knows what this is about. I have searched the forum but not found anything. It seems to be a programming errorr to me.

As it is now, I have to become root and kill the bash-script which keeps the pppd respawning (/bin/bash /sbin/adsl-connect /etc/ppp/rp-pppoe-gui/conf.<ISP>) and then kill the pppd.

The command that is run when I press the Stop button seems to be:
/usr/sbin/pppoe-wrapper stop <ISP>
which also produces the same error message.

ppp runs these two processes:
2238 ? S 0:00 /usr/sbin/pppd pty /usr/sbin/pppoe -p /var/run/ -I eth0
2239 ? S 0:00 /usr/sbin/pppoe -p /var/run/adsl-<ISP>.pid.pppoe -I eth0 -T 80 -U -s -m 1412

So, if you have a clue, respond
