[OLSR-users] Assertion `metric_counter' failed (IPV4)

That's interesting info.
Do you have the oppertunity to build a special software for one of your
nodes and reproduce the problem? I have attached a patch that writes
some info we could use in debugging this problem to stdout. This means
that you can run olsrd with debuglevel 0(and the -nofork option) and
only the new debug output will occur.
Thanks.
