Could you please be a bit more specific about the issue you are talking about?
I can only talk about the simple two node installation I had when I was forced to write the wireshark-batman-adv dissector for v15. I just placed them next to each other and tried to ping the other one (not sure anymore if it was the node directly or two other devices plugged in the ethernet port of the devices). And I think there was a reboot of one node and a ARP cache flush involved. I've expected to see the 4addr packets when capturing on the wireless and then having both nodes talking to each other. This was not working. I could only communicate after disabling DAT... but of course the communication which I wanted to capture wasn't happening.
Either I got a dump from you or I've tried again until it worked.
So far the only situation where I personally switched DAT off did not really get fixed and continued to show the issue. Therefore I am not really sure that DAT can be blamed for this.
So far I don't know anybody else who complained about DAT.
You have to ask Marek why DAT is disabled in many installations for which he is more or less responsible. Maybe he has more to contribute than me.
Kind regards, Sven
