Still, the syslog section is not big enough. There should be something
starting with "eth0 was not configured. ppp-udeb will bring it up" or
"eth0 was already up". (even if the relevant Ethernet interface for
you is eth1, please make sure you provide also the section with eth0,
if any, even if is long; although I don't think so, it could be
possible I have messed something in the code and probing is done

Also, I see your log is starting with:
"Aug 25 12:55:07 debconf: --> UNREGISTER ppp/password" which is part
of the current detction, but it is too late, and do not slaughter the
log because you are removing precious information (you can obfuscate
the addresses, but please, please, please, do NOT remove sections from
the syslog).
