I just checked again. On a kernel that had been running pppoe0 all day
I shut down that interface, removed the defaultroute and fired up ppp (with

Jul 22 19:27:12 nighfall pppd[431]: pppd 2.4.0 started by root, uid 0
Jul 22 19:27:12 nighfall pppd[431]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/ttyp0
Jul 22 19:27:12 nighfall /netbsd: pppoe: received PADO but could not find request for it
Jul 22 19:27:14 nighfall pppd[431]: local  IP address
Jul 22 19:27:14 nighfall pppd[431]: remote IP address

and everything works just fine.

Just to make sure I rebooted into a clean state, did not touch the pppoe
interfaces, ifconfig up'd the ethernet interface and started pppd - again,
same result.

So by all means, if you can reproduce a crash when running rp-pppoe with
a kernel with pppoe interfaces, please file a PR with all details you have.
If you could provide a crash dump and kernel with symbols, that would be
realy appreciated.
