Hey Ben,

If you can easily build from git then run the olsrd that you built, then the best thing is probably to do a "git bisect" sequence.  'git bisect' automates the process of finding the commit that caused a bug.  Basically, you mark the current commit as bad, then make the last known good commit as good (i.e. "git checkout OLSRD_0_6_2"), then run the bisect process.  It'll check out commit, then you build that one and run it, then mark it as good or bad, then it'll checkout another commit, build and run it, mark as good or bad, until you get to the last commit:

That is, I will find that olsrd has crashed silently on one of the APs, leaving the AP's routing table stuck at whatever state it was in when the daemon crashed.  95% of the time this is not a problem, as my nodes are at fixed locations, so the stale routing is still valid.
