No, in my opinion it never worked. But I thought that pppd does it wrong
because id never got an IPv6 address. But I had always forwarding
enabled. Now in this case i started pppd without forwarding enabled and
got an address.

Does pppd log any errors?

No, no errors

Could you post a pppd debug log showing the ppp protocol exchange with the peer in the failing case? It might give some clues.
