It is not the reference.
When ppp is started it first tries to dial in using the profile named
>"root    212 <sniped> ppp -ddial <look here>default<look here>"

As a quick workaround: In your ppp.conf delete the default profile and
rename your profile default. The remove the 'ppp_profile="my_isp"'
line from your rc.conf.

I am pretty shure there is a cleaner way to do this. But unfortunatly
I am unaware of it.
