Connected but no traffic

At 12:48 today I got disconnected, reconnected to 195.166.128.183 lo0-central10.pcl-ag02.plus.net, and ended up in that odd situation where you've got an IP address and are connected to a Plusnet gateway, but with no Internet connection, nothing seems to go past the gateway.
[tt]traceroute to community.plus.net (212.159.8.110), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets
1  gateway (192.168.0.1)  1.512 ms
2  195.166.128.183 (195.166.128.183)  12.268 ms

Re-connected the PPP session, and ended up on 195.166.128.183 again and in the same non-working state. Had to re-connect a second time, and got on a different gateway and a working connection.
Edit: just to add I see that there was some maintenance done on pcl-ag02 last week, which may or may not have anything to do with this issue.

Re: Connected but no traffic

I think it's occurred once or twice in the capacity issues thread:

I was kicked off Plusnet in the wee-small hours last night and it took a while to get another connection again - remained in sync, but got the weird going nowhere routing.  Now on ptw-bng01
