Logs aren't everything--especially with pppd(8).  It won't report media
failures.  Aha, maybe this is what might be of some usefulness to you:
pppd printing out those ``ppp0 <-> /dev/foo'' lines doesn't mean
/dev/foo is OK.  It happily printed these when running over a serial
port, wile it wasn't able to establish a connection.  When I switched
the cable to the other port, everything went OK.  The port worked few
days before, and got apparently burned in the meantime.

Trace what pppd writes/reads -- use the pppd's `pty' option.
