Most likely a bug in the "rfc compatible" hello generation. I don't think this
code has been tested for years.
If you plan to use a real network, activate the ETX extension.
You will not get a working network with this settings, not even in simulation
(OLSRd does not run well with MPR selection in the 0.5.x branch).
