pppd works fine on leased line only when both sides responds.

in case of one peed inactive pppd quickly (less than a minute) gets into 
100% CPU loop state, in which it stops responding to peer too.

my ppp config looks like that:

local crtscts
maxfail 0
#deflate 15
persist noauth defaultroute nobsdcomp 

peer (master) looks similar just with IPv4 addresses specified

it worked fine with 2.0.2, doesn't work in -current and it's most probably kernel bug so i classified is as kern
use pppd with leased line (with local option not modem) and kill pppd on one peer. second peer will quickly go into 100% CPU state. rerunning pppd 
on first peer don't negotiate things again and... quickly goes to 100% CPU state too :(
