I would say not very often,.. but your descriptino is very generic,..

But there is the watchdog plugin, to help somehow
(infact just against olsrd main-loop hangs, which if txtinfo still worked,
you afaict did not suffer from)

But did you look for anything on the syslog?
Or did e.g. txinfo (port 2006) /interfaces reported any active olsrd
Which could give some hints, what olsrd's problem actually was about.
