I suspect a bug in pppd. I am using pppd over pppoe, using:

pty '/usr/sbin/pppoe -I eth1 -T 120 -U -m 1412 '

pppd ploughs ahead with LCP even when the pppoe command fails when it cannot find its peer:

pppoe: Timeout waiting for PADO packets

Jan  1 00:02:22 (none) daemon.debug pppd[88]: device script returned: 768
Jan  1 00:02:22 (none) daemon.info pppd[88]: Serial connection established.

In any event, pppd should have aborted without attempting to run LCP.
LCP is unlikely to be useful at all if the chat script fails.
