Each OLSR instance sets it's own HNA entries, so other OLSR nodes 
cannot/should not influence this routing entry directly.

But you could some kind of signaling between your plugins so that the new 
connected OLSR plugin can tell the old ones to drop their HNA setting. If you 
set the HNA frequency high enough this should help to solve your problem I
