I'm having problems running both pppoe and pptp.

When I start pptp after the pppoe connection is initialized

start ppp again.
That's odd.  I don't see any reason why pptp disconnecting should reset the
tun0 interface.

I can't find good documentation about the pptp. The only thing I can find
is readme telling me what should I edit from the config file and a very short
example config file (about 10 lines).
Are you using mpd?  What is the server?
Can you send the list a copy of the mpd.conf from both machines (client & server)
or whatever config file is relevent.

If You know what is or might be the problem, pls help.
Make sure multilink is disabled at both ends of the pptp link
