That's the answer!!  

Francisco suggested using a Zharf while you suggested using another Wharf
in a folder.  I merged the 2 ideas.

I created another Wharf and called it "Wharf2".  Then added this to my

## launch some stuff when connected
init "esdplay ~/files/wav/connected.wav && Wharf2 &"  

## Kill them all!!!!
disconnect "esdplay ~/files/wav/disconnected.wav && killall Wharf2 &&
killall netload && killall asmodem && killall licq &"

Now when I connect, pppd launches the extra dockapps and kills it when I
disconnect.  Thanks guys, why didn't I think of this.
