Yes, that is the bug that we saw once at c-base and that we were
unfortunately never able to reproduce. :-( Back then it looked like this
has something to do with the OLSR interface going up and down.
When Windows shuts down the OLSR interface because the node loses its
network connectivity, olsrd sets the node's main address to 0.0.0.0 once
it detects that the interface is gone. It looks like olsrd sends out
HELLO messages with this main address. However, as the OLSR interface is
already shut down, there shouldn't be any way for olsrd to send HELLO
messages with this main address. Weird. I'll keep investigating.
