Guys, this isn't a "problem" for me. I'll just use slip until the next Bay
or freebsd upgrade comes along or until I change providers (whichever comes
first). The reasons why I have a static IP address are numerous and not
relevant. 

This is a compatibility issue between a Bay release and seems to be unique
to freebsd pppd. Bay claims the freebsd crew screwed up. I thought you might
like to know. If I am wrong on either assumption please accept my sincere
apologies. I'm a user, not a developer (or even programmer for that matter).

BTW: I brought this up in -questions first and tried the suggestions.
