I found the solution on my own this night: in chap-/pap-
secrets aren't any longer IP-pairs allowed (why?)!!
The IP's are a blanc separated list of allowed IP's: 

"ama" "rex2" "handy" teddy-laptop

The choice of IP's determined to a calling client 
have to be inserted in  login.config, e.g.:

/AutoPPP/ -     a_ppp   /usr/sbin/pppd auth

This works. I ask me why pairs of IP's aren't any longer allowed
in chap-secrets. (Or never been allowed before? A fault of mine?)
