at least for me, I had to add iface clear to ppp.linkdown as well,
because it would then delete it after the connection is dropped.  

about killing ppp, I always do a 'killall ppp' and that always seems to
do the trick..  you might add the set server line to add a pppctl
socket.  it is as good as running it in interactive mode, and you can
spy on the connection and open/close/etc to ppp
