Yes it's pppd it happens even before any traffic. try starting pppd in a server
mode where it simply wait on a remote connection but you have to turn on the
local option otherwise pppd waits on the modem and don't even try to start ppp.
pppd ttyS0 9600 local
and a dummy pap-sectrets file should do it.
