That's not what the log shows. It shows that you don't get disconnected
until about 40 seconds **after** ppp is established. This suggests a failed
LCP negotiation, but those messages aren't logged in the "messages" log. Run
pppd with "debug" and "kdebug 0" set, and check the "debug" log for LCP info.
