Hi Edgar,

Can you please provide;

* A dmesg, just so we can see what/how many radios;
* what do you mean by "create two mesh nodes" - do you mean two mesh
nodes on the same board, one on each radio?

Will provide dumps soon.

But yes, effectively, two physical radios on a single board.

Each configured in mesh mode. 

When they are both configured the same (channel/meshid/etc), and see
each other, bad things happen. - Easy fix is to MAC filter.

When they are both configured differently (channel/meshid/etc), and see
each other, via the network, bad things happen. - Easy fix is to MAC

Interesting phenomena I am tracking down...sometimes the local and peer
addresses are three characters vs four...and then of course its b0rkeD...
a reboot sometimes cleans it right up, and things run...

Finally, there's no mechanism to manually flush out the mesh info, yet,
so I also noticed that it appears the routes just stop updating...

I've been too busy to root cause many issues, and have only focused on
the show-stoppers...but I really need to...
