I'm running Debian's PPP package version 2.1.2b-1 and I've never seen
that particular message.
111 is `Connection Refused' where I come from. Is there anything
running in the background that might be trying to talk to the outside
world? It could run out of cron, be permanently alive, or run from
/etc/ppp/ip-up; or something I haven't thought of.
Are you using Smail, sendmail, neither, or something else?
Anything relevant in any of the files in /var/log?
Are you certain it came from your machine rather than the machine you
are connected to?
