[ECOS] PPP Timeout not reset automatically?

I'm running with the FreeBSD stack if it matters, but what I'm seeing is PPP doesn't seem to reset the PPP timeout the next time it connects.n

Code is roughly init_all_network_interfaces(), followed by cyg_ppp_up() which is then allowed to time out from traffic going to idle.  Then cyg_ppp_up() is called a few minutes later and eCos seems to be timing out immediately.  Info printed to the debug output looks like this:

SYSLOG 08: Using interface ppp0 
SYSLOG 04: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/ser0 
SYSLOG 04: local  IP address 10.20.20.2 
SYSLOG 04: remote IP address 10.20.20.1 
SYSLOG 08: Terminating connection due to lack of activity. 
SYSLOG 04: Connection terminated, connected for 1 minutes 

Then later on:
SYSLOG 08: Using interface ppp0 
SYSLOG 04: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/ser0 
SYSLOG 08: Connect time expired 
SYSLOG 04: Connection terminated, connected for 1 minutes 

Note that the second connection doesn't show that termination is due to lack of activity but that connect time has expired.
No matter how many times cyg_ppp_up is called again, it never connects again :-(

Figured I'd ask in case someone else has hit this...
