hmm i think it`s without local ip to avoid "conflicts" (or unwanted results)
in combination with olsrd itself writing routes with an specified source
ip,.. (an optional mostly unused? feature)

but this is no real reason for not specifying the source ip of the tunnel *G

so just set it to the originator-ip,..
