I do not have a powerpc system running (yet) so my experience is mainly
from running debian-i386 systems.  That said...

The log you show us is (presumably) from your PPP chat session.  The
last line, just before the 'garbage' in your logs says "expect
(CONNECT)".  That means the chat program is looking for the string
"CONNECT" in what it gets from the modem - otherwise it logs everything
up to that point.  I don't see the "CONNECT" string anywhere in the
logfile snippet you posted.  

Does your PPP connection even work when this is happening?  

It would seem to me that chat will either be waiting indefinitely OR
timeout unless it sees "CONNECT".  I wouldn't expect your PPP to work.

Maybe you can try removing the line in your chatscript that says
"CONNECT" on it?  That will at least make it so chat won't look for that
