Hi Saverio and everyone else with this problem,

i think the solution to this problem is much simpler, use these 3
options within tinc.conf:

TunnelServer = yes
DirectOnly = yes
Forwarding = off

This way only direct links will get broadcasts from olsr. Its running
like this for a week now here and it looks really good.

Regards, soma
