Yes, the HTTPINFO plugin in general and especially the admin interface 
is in a really bad shape because nobody used it for years. It cannot 
handle multiple concurrent accesses well, it consumes quite a lot of 
memory and the its not that useful.

At the moment OLSRd (neither stable nor development branch) is prepared
for any kind of configuration change during runtime. The only thing that
is dynamic is the IPs of the interfaces, which are scanned by OLSRd
during runtime.

The new OLSRd (v2) I am working on should resolve the problem, but doing
it for the current one will be quite a lot of work.
