Yep, that's it.  Sugar is entirely relying on the existence of this
multicast route, and it is not present on os240py.

It can temporarily be added after mesh is started:

	ip route add 224.0.0.0/4 dev msh0

And after that, I've tested that Chat activity when shared appears in
Neighbourhood View of other laptops, and that another laptop running
os240py can join it.  Conversation works fine.

Bernie, modules/base/kspost.10.core.inc in olpc-os-builder handles this
for ad-hoc.  Presumably it needs a similar thing for mesh.
