Check the syslog to see what processes are initiating the connection. When -- for instance -- fetchmail awakens the diald, it'll hang up again as soon as it's done fetching unless some other process has started using the connection in the meantime. (I used to use an IRC client as a linefill/keepalive.) Either disable the daemons that are making connections, or configure them to connect less frequently, or get rid of diald and stick to connecting with pon, which won't hang up until you poff. I'm having the same problem with the modem speaker not turning off -- I've got "M0" in the init string, but it doesn't turn off the speaker like it's supposed to.
