[mrtg] ppp-trouble after upgrade (Debian lenny)

after upgrading my server to lenny I notice that the interaction of mrtg
(2.16.2-3) and snmpd (5.4.1-12) is somewhat troublesome.
As the dialup-ppp-device keeps changing its snmp-target-id I long ago resolved
to using the name to address the interface:
#ppp0@:public at localhost
As this worked before, it does not anymore, I get the error:
"did not eval into defined data"
Defining the target-id works, but as mentioned that changes with every dial-in
and thus is not an option.
Does anyone experience the same? I'm not entirely sure whether the fault is
with mrtg or with snmpd or lies within a compatibility issue between both.
