GPRS unreliable: long lasting connection fail

I cannot get a reliable GPRS connection lasting for some hours,
There is a problem with pppd, which does not restart the gprs
connection when failed: it seems that pppd options "persist" and
"holdoff" are not honored.
I opened a bug ticket, which did not get reply:
I tried Om2007.2 and Om2008.12 without GPS multiplexing: I
just stop gsmd (2007.2) or qpe (2008.12) before starting pppd and
chat, but the problem is still there.
- Can gsm0710muxd (GSM multiplexer) help in some way?
- Does GPRS require pppd or are there different software
solutions? Don't know FSO, etc...
What are other experiences with long-lasting GPRS calls?
