Indeed, with adding "local" it works. Thanx for your help!
adding local is _not_ what you really want to do! from pppd(8):
local Don't use the modem control lines. With this
option, pppd will ignore the state of the CD (Car-
rier Detect) signal from the modem and will not
change the state of the DTR (Data Terminal Ready)
which means that when your modem hangs up, pppd will _NOT_ know
this sounds like a new bug in pppd's handling of modem control
lines... i *really* hope someone fixes it soon....
