Hmm, how much ram do you have ? and do you have LCP Echos crossing the
ppp link to make sure it's still up ? I think that pppd is being swaped
out on you, and so can't reply quickly enough for the other end to keep
the connection going (I think that it's pppd that deals with the LCP
Echos). If that's the case (you'd need to be short of memory when X
started up too), then turning off the LCP echos will fix it (though it
may stop a droped connection being detected so soon too). If the LCP
Echos are handled in the kernel portion, then I've no idea tho.
