Thanks for responding hc.

Unfortunately I don't have a very good diagnostics on whatever is causing
olsrd v0.6.1 to crash randomly (and also very sporadically, maybe once /
week).  The only relevant log message I've seen is "bad file descriptor,"
as I described in this thread:

I will be trying v0.6.2 soon.  If the problem persists, I will then try
more fine grained probing into git commits.
