I thought you were supposed to set pppd's MTU to 1492 (or some slightly less value) to allow for something in the header.  Or something like that ... it's been a long time since I dealt with pppd -- back in my dialup days.

1.4.2 also has the 2.6 kernel, which changes things quite a bit.
I try things like forcing the MTU size to like 1500, see if that
