It was silo overflows. I'm now running on a kernel that has all of the
options I added except ppp_deflate, and it's working fine. I suspect
the problem may be that I only did a make depend and didn't do a make
clean in my kernel compile directory when I added the options. I
think some modules that should have been recompiled with -DPPP_DEFLATE
didn't, and I haven't taken the time to do one last kernel rebuild.
