One possibly interesting note is that I see LCP being renegotiated after
starting authentication.  That's a dead give-away that the other side
has a front-end device that tunnels the PPP traffic back to back-end

The reason it works sometimes and not at other times could be that you
sometimes hit a broken (or misconfigured) back-end server, and other
times you hit one that's ok.

It could also be that someone on their side noticed the errors and fixed
something.  You could be just that lucky.  :-/
