I'd suggest using CONNECT '\c' as the last chat expect-send insteadQuote:> ===============/ect/ppp/diald-dialer=============

of just CONNECT. If you are lucky then that change alone will be enough.

Since I haven't used it I can't comment much on diald, but this saysQuote:> May 13 17:47:12 myserver diald: Running pppd (pid = 931).

that there is likely something wrong with the pppd configuration
options, at least in diald's opinion.
Do as it says, check the pppd options. Although the diald options you
posted clearly contained some pppd options and I saw nothing unusual,
the diald configuration options may not be correctly specified. You can
also add debug to the pppd options and post exact copies of the PPP
negotiation log messages, including timestamps, which should be in one
of the log files in the /var/log directory. Just which file varies
according to how /etc/syslog.conf is configured.
The Lucent "modem" driver might also be a factor since as the kernel
version changes these must usually change too.
