Ah, thanks. 

I tried those LCP options and there is no appreciable difference.

Another odd thing, while you are here:
After a few hours pppd cannot connect via pppoe anymore. 

It does not matter what I do: restart networking, pull cables, rmmod pppoe, 
killall pppd - whatever I do, I get "PPPOE protocol not available" (from 
memory, I didn't make a note).

I have to *shudder* restart ... Linux! ... the shame. After that the pppoe 
connects again just fine.

This added to the "grinding halt" is making Kubuntu hell again. As if VPN 
wasn't bad enough. 

Perhaps I should just jump to the latest version and leave Dapper behind.
