We are seeing similar problems on i386's running 1.2 (and even pre-1.2).
The PPP connection is opened properly, but within a few minutes...hours
the system reports a modem hangup and the connection is terminated.  It
might have something to do with the lcp-echo requests, but I haven't had
the time to try running without this option (we need to have these PPP
connections running all the time).

On my A3000, I don't have this problem (with the A2232 serial card).  On
an i386 box, the connection is terminated 20-30 times a day.  Same config
on all machines.
