I'm not sure what an "openwrt-0.9" is but may be this helps you:

Yeah, it always takes one minute - its the internal timeout for inactive 
gateways.  :-)

By the way, you still can ping around and test the connection yourself. Either 
by using a simple cron script which runs every x minutes or by triggering your 
test script via the routing script. Depending on your setup/firewall/ISP you 
might experience problems pinging around. Also, if your users expect the 
internet to work for 2 hours per day you waste time and bandwidth in the other 
22 hours of the day.
