 PPP not closing

Hello. I have a freeBSD 5X running as PPPoE server. When a new incoming connection starts it opens a tun connection. I have a list like this:

...
...
...

lo0: flags=8049<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 16384
inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 0xff000000
inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128
inet6 fe80::1%lo0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x3
tun0: flags=8051<UP,POINTOPOINT,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1450
inet 10.10.0.1 --> 10.10.4.92 netmask 0xffffffff
Opened by PID 81971
tun1: flags=8051<UP,POINTOPOINT,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1450
inet 10.10.0.1 --> 10.10.1.201 netmask 0xffffffff
Opened by PID 82946
tun2: flags=8051<UP,POINTOPOINT,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1450
inet 10.10.0.1 --> 10.10.3.174 netmask 0xffffffff
Opened by PID 99648
...
...
tun24: flags=8010<POINTOPOINT,MULTICAST> mtu 1450
tun25: flags=8051<UP,POINTOPOINT,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1450
inet 10.10.0.1 --> 10.10.2.145 netmask 0xffffffff
Opened by PID 82701


As you can see, tun 24 is in a strange status. I suppose that the connection using that tunnel has closed, but it has not closed that tunnel. How can I do for this not to happen? or at least to close by hand that connection??
