Description Tommaso Pecorella 2014-01-01 11:36:55 EST
This is caused by a wrong assumption: NOARP devices doesn't have a NDisc cache.

Even if NDP isn't used on NOARP devices, still the NDisc cache can (and must) exist, to hold manually injected neighbor entries (in a real system).

The actual ns-3 behaviour is still wrong (see bug #1822), but this doesn't mean that we can avoid to create the cache.
