This should be in a FAQ somewhere. It almost always means that ppp has
started up at your end while some sort of a shell is still running at the
other end, echoing everything that ppp "types". It usually results from a
chatscript problem. I had my system start doing this out of the blue a few
months ago. Turned out that my isp had made a change that resulted in what
had been a working chat being too fast. I had to add some delays.
Perhaps your crash punctured your chat file?

pppd looks in /var/run to find out how many ppp's are running. Go into
/var/run and remove all the ppp*.pid files.
