I forgot to mention that you need to run:

SuSEconfig --module permissions

I would try accessing the modem with minicom, but I'm unsure because of what you add later.

But the most important, now I could dialup with wvdial as a normal user.

And, BINGO; now also my setup in GNOME PPP does connect with the CMOTECH EVDO CDMA USB modem D-50 for mobil broadband.
Here is the cleaner connection log from Gnome PPP:

This mobil connection was done after a reboot, disconnection of my wired ADSL broadband and lastly started Gnome PPP after login.

This brought in another thought; is there a way to let the Gnome Network Manager handle also the wireless USB modem connection/network as it does for my wired ADSL network?
