[OLSR-users] Problem with droptime

I use the same olsrd.conf on all 3 nodes. I tried a lot of configurations 
with a
hello_interval from 1.0 to 0.1 seconds. I also changed the tc_interval. The
time to find a new route is between 9 and 16 seconds. (And I change only
between a direct link and a 1-hop-link on an 100Mbit-Ethernet)

I don't use the GUI. I set the hysteries to "no" and LQ=0 (not used). The
changes are reflected on the startup output correctly.

What times to find a new route can I expect in such a szenario? By the way
if I use a Hello_interval with 0.1 the new route is unstable. (some 
test-pings
were dropped)
