Description Peter Barnes 2017-07-10 18:27:21 EDT
Dizhi reported on the developer list: In brief, the problem I see is that Config::Set function may fail to set an attribute if 1) its name-space path uses a string defined by Names::Add and 2) Config::Set is called after any object aggregation (e.g., InternetStackHelper::Install() function). How to reproduce this problem can be found in the "/*Description*/" section of my first Email http://mailman.isi.edu/pipermail/ns-developers/2017-June/013967.html My first Email explained the root cause of this bug and proposed a solution as well.

Updated URL for Dizhi's original post: https://mailman.isi.edu/pipermail/ns-developers/2017-June/013805.html (ISI mailman archives were rebuilt recently and old links don't work). Anyway, I am going to try to move this along and form a patch from Dizhi's email.
