Even so, the fact that you have to dink the network configuration to get
Leafnode to work again makes it seem likely that some problem with the
network is creating trouble for Leafnode[1].  Do you have any problems with
other applications (fetchmail for example)?

There's a suggestion that you should try lowering the MRU and MTU in the
fetchmail FAQ.  It suggests (without explanation) using a value of 552.
I'm blissfully unaware of how you'd do that in KPPP, but the relevant
options for pppd are "mru 552" and "mtu 552".

[1] In fact, the close link option in KPPP is probably implemented as 
    "kill <pid>" :-) .
