syslog and pppd problem

Sometimes when my modem hangs up, the following happens
in my syslog.
Jan 31 23:25:41 boggle pppd[180]: tegetattr: I/O error(5)
Jan 31 21:26:12 boggle last message repeated 60412 times
Jan 31 21:26:22 boggle last message repeated 17172 times

Also pppd appears not to terminate normally, because

Jan 31 21:26:22 pppd[180]:Exit

does not appear in the log. Regardless of the exit status
(0 or 1 or whatever), this line is supposed to be
logged before the program calls exit.

It sounds as if DTR is lowering on the port and pppd is trying
to get the attributes of the port (and is obviously unable to).
Try using mgetty (available from ftp.leo.org).  This should
aid in controlling the port while, during, and after your
connection.
