I don't know if I fully understand your setup. You
are adding mobility by adding and removing links
using a script? Or are these links just set up
initially using this script?
If the links are static OLSR should definelty provide
stable routes. In that case, try 0.4.4 and see if it
works better. If it does there probably is a bug in 0.4.5

Please report back.
