What about olsrd just invoking a script when it detects an IP duplicate?
(Or should be "olsrd stops, invokes script, restarts?", I think this is 
unnecessary, but you're the olsr guru)

I am using IP zeroconf and olsr (in a small research envrionment) and if 
  could olsr detect IP address conflicts, that would be great (ARP 
doesnt really help in an olsr'd net). For me, invoking a script that 
rolls the dice for just another IP address would seem like a good solution.

Just my 2 cents,
Kosta
