I ran into the same problem yesterday, (or was it today ?:), and for
my system (potato with kde stable for potato) the solution was to
upgrade kppp to the most recent version, 1.6.25 (I had to compile it
myself). Articles on Deja.com say that the older versions of kppp
relied on a bug in the kernels _before_ 2.2.14 IIRC. So the solution
seems to be either to upgrade kppp or to downgrade your kernel.
Hope this helps
