But then my PPP dies, saying modem hangup and communications terminated.
But if I jump into Kermit after this has happened, I can connect and the
remote machine is still running PPP, and the modems are still connected.
Just my PPP has quit.

Well, you can start by cleaning up that options file. What I have is a file
called /etc/ppp/chatscript, and I put the entire chat script in that file.
The in the options file I (from memory, sorta hazy) connect 'chat -f
/etc/ppp/chatscript'. This way both files are that much more readable.
