[OLSR-users] Behavior in IPv6

The GUI has not been very much tested with IPv6 for the last releases... 
well it's not been to well tested with IPv6 ever ;)

The stuff you mention is clearly misbehaviour and I'll see if I can find 
the time to look into it before the next release! Until then you'll have 
to stick with the stdout output or just the good old
watch 'route -A inet6'
