Just to make sure.... It looks on like you applied the wrong
patch. (Maybe you just haven't pushed out the latest changes there yet.)
Please double-check that you actually applied the latest version (which is
the one in the mail you replied "applied" to, important part quoted above). 

Additionally, there's still a couple of trivial patches pending in
the "patches" branch of 

Please see the original thread[1], where Patrick McHarding had some concerns
about one of the patches. It's exactly the same changes you made in commit
660818498d0f5a3f52c05355a3e82c23f670fcc1 [2] though, so I don't really see the
problem. I have an additional patch[3] available, that makes MAX_ROUNDS
configurable which Patrick requested.

Please comment on the way forward there....

[2]: Where the comment seems to be wrong about "Limit ip route flush...",
     since it's actually "ip neigh flush" that's being modified.
[3]: I have a slightly updated patch, but it's basically the same as
	 Will send updated version if the patches it's based on goes in.
