I've run into this as well. After a bit of research, I found the
following seems to do the trick:
( echo -n 'ppp lost:' ; date ) >> /tmp/ppp-down.log
exec >> /tmp/ppp-down.log 2>&1
/sbin/ifconfig eth1 down
/sbin/ifconfig eth1 up
I slapped this into /etc/ppp/adsl-lost, and haven't had an outage (that
didn't recover by itself) since. Just make sure your dyndns client runs
when it comes back up....
