Are you starting your ipchains rules from /etc/ppp/ip-up ?
In my experience, problems result when I have started my firewall rules before
my connection is up.  I don't have problems when I start my firewall rules
from /etc/ppp/ip-up.

If I start my rules when the machine boots, I have problems.
Do you have some rule that is blocking port 53?
