[Olsr-dev] Routing across multiple interfaces

Hi all,
    I'm using olsrd-0.5.4 on a 802.11 network of 3 machines, one with
 two wireless interfaces (on different  wireless channel and subnet):  
    [Node 1] <->[Node 2] <->[Node 3]
    I was expecting olsrd to be able to handle multiple interfaces like
 this, i.e. Node 1 is able to send to Node 3 via Node 2. In fact I am
 able to send from Node 1 to Node 3, but only for the first 5 seconds or
 so after all the olsrd daemon on these nodes are started, roughly
 at the same time. When I check the routing table on Node 1 or Node 3,
 each of them display a route to each other, via Node 2. But the route is
 then deleted from the routing table. I found out that the route entry is deleted due to mismatch in routing tree version. But the question is why wouldn't the route be added back to the kernel routing table again? I'm digging deep to find out why, but if anyone knows why this is happening then I'd really appreciate if you can help me out. Thank you in advanced.
