Bug in 2.0.35 with PPP?

I just had a replicable problem with 2.0.35 and PPP. I was
downloading an extremely large file (40M) with my 28.8k. It
started out going full speed, and gradually slowed down, more and
more until it was barely doing anything at all. I had a couple
other downloads going on too, just small things though.

I then downloaded email, and started a couple other networked
things (ftp, etc..) I then did a ping to my dns, and ppp hung up
on me.

I reconnected, re-established my ftp, reget'd the files, and
refreshed the webpages that were downloading in NS.

Again, the large download started cruising just fine, and then
gradually slowed more and more until the same thing happened
again. It happened one more time after that as well.

Here is my log. LCP timeout sending config requests? Connection
terminated? Is this a bug on my end or my ISP?
