OK, I see you're using pppd - unfortunately this is known to have
serious problems and is essentially unmaintained in FreeBSD.  Use
ppp(8) instead, or if you really don't want to change over then you'll
have to configure debugging as in the developers' handbook chapter on
kernel debugging, and try to determine whether or not pppd is really
to blame.
