Multilink PPP dies on LCP reconfigure

    All:

    I'm trying to install a pair of T1s using Multilink PPP to connect my
    RH 9 + Sangoma Wanpipe firewall/router to my ISP's Cisco 12016/GRP
    running v12.0 of (I assume) IOS.

    The PPP sessions all establish just fine, but anywhere from thirty seconds
    to ten minutes from the initial connect, and occurring fairly frequently
    thereafter, the Cisco starts sending LCP ConfReqs with a new magic number.

    Unfortunately, this ends up killing the ppp daemon:

    If I turn off multilink, then the daemon successfully reconfigures and
    reestablishes the ppp0 interface.

    Can anybody provide some insight as to why this is happening?

    Versions and such:

    Redhat Linux 9.0
    2.4.20-31.9smp kernel from the fedoralegacy site
    ppp-2.4.1-10
    Sangoma Wanpipe S514-7-PCI dual T1/E1 card
    WANPIPE Hardware Support Module Stable 2.3.1-2

    Thanks for any help.
