deflink: Oops, RCR in Initial - Solution?

Not quite sure why, but after running smoothly for a few days the OpenBSD DSL router suddenly started having problems reconnecting after the daily disconnect (it's attached to Deutsche Telekom's T-DSL service, which forces a reconnect after 24 hours). The log filled with messages like this:

Apr 16 10:02:36 akita ppp[18390]: tun0: IPCP:  IPADDR[6] 2xx.x.1xx.x 
Apr 16 10:02:36 akita ppp[18390]: tun0: IPCP: deflink: Oops, RCR in Initial. 
Apr 16 10:02:39 akita ppp[18390]: tun0: IPCP: deflink: RecvConfigReq(12) state =
 Initial

Killing ppp and manually redialling resulted in an instant reconnection.

OpenBSD: Secure, and also Surreal

Um, yes. One compelling reason for OpenBSD (apart that it actually boots from the install CD on the Frankenstein PC [1] I use as a router / gateway) is definitely its musical accompaniment.

Also, its mailing lists can sometimes be delightfully surreal, such as this thread here: http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?t=111387450800001.

[1] PC made from bits which were probably worth a lot of money when new, but now even the eastern European junk handlers who stand outside the municipal recycling stations here in Berlin won't take.
