Could you try this little experiment please?

 - reboot the machine and establish the pppoe connection
 - unplug the network cable used for pppoe
 - wait one minute

Now the connection should have failed. Please  check /var/log/messages for
the LCP error message and post the output of "pppoectl pppoe0" and "pppoectl
-d pppoe0".

The reboot imediatley before this test is important to make sure this is not
a side effect of a callwheel corruption bug unrelated to pppoe.
