Humm, a good PPP system should hold (freeze) connections 
and resolving requests until the connection is up again ; 
but apparently this isn't supported by most PPP dialers.

Well, no, this isn't implemented, because quite difficult 
to do : how do you figure that the connection was broken? 
You can have a PPP link, or an upper layer through a DSL 
link, or a routing link, or a transparent bridge.. 

The only solution, maybe, would be to freeze everything if 
all connection are shutdown at the same time.. I'll try to 
do tests in future releases (added on the TODO list)
