Yes, it would take some time.
This was just the reference test dyn_gw is working.

Could you test with single node, with ping test to, in order below. Run tcpdump in background.
1. olsrd is running, cable connected, default route is in routing table, ping to succeeds, HNA is advertised
2. remove cable, ping to fails
3. each 10 seconds, check routing table for default routes (metric 0 and metric 2), HNA advertisement
4. after 2 minutes or so, connect the cable and reinstall your static route if needed, ping to should succeed
5. repeat step 3.

I did see output, where OLSR reacted on disconnected cable. But there was also the static route. This was strange, please confirm if this problem is still present.
