[Olsr-dev] does the current Debian olsrd.conf work with a mesh?

This BSSID is not correct if you look at  IEEE 802.11, Section
and Section 11.1.3. It should be a locally administered mac:

The value of this field in an IBSS is a locally administered IEEE MAC
address formed from a 46-bit random
number generated according to the procedure defined in 11.1.3. The
individual/group bit of the address is set
to 0. The universal/local bit of the address is set to 1. This mechanism
is used to provide a high probability of
selecting a unique BSSID.[1]

In most cases it works if you don't follow that standard, but i've heard
of some cases where this has caused problems.

Also i'd like to join Daniel in asking why channel 7?
