I am having the same problems with Linux v2.2.3 and ppp-2.3.6. I upgraded
both at once, so I was going to go back and determine which version
started it. My problems are happening occasionally and with ppp as a
client.

Since you are having the same problems with ppp-2.3.5, I assume there is a
strong possibility the problem is in Linux. I can't say absolutely it is
with Linux since I have learned my lesson about saying where the absolute
problem is when it comes to bugs. :) Which version of Linux are you
using?

You would not happen to be using CIOE/WinStar/Goodnet by chance? They
might have done something to tickle a bug. I don't want to ignore any
possibilities.

My log file (/var/log/syslog):

Mar 12 09:02:29 seen pppd[2237]: pppd 2.3.6 started by root, uid 0
Mar 12 09:02:29 seen pppd[2237]: Using interface ppp0

Mar 12 09:20:02 seen xringd[2295]: version 1.20 started by root (uid 0)
Mar 12 09:20:03 seen pppd[2237]: Exit.

This fails with or without xringd running, so I rules that out. Any ideas
for me to try?
