I've got the same problem, and using this code does not solve the problem
for all cases (in my particular simulation)

Instead, I'm using this with great success:

In C++, at the top of  ARPTable::arpresolve , insert this code that requires
#include "utils_ns.h" (see

--- cut here ---

TCL_EVALFr("ARP_find_mobile_iaddr2mac %d", dst);
LL *ll = (LL *)TclObject::lookup(Tcl::instance().result());

        dprintf("Error: LL empty\n");   
int mac = ll->mac_->addr();
mac_->hdr_dst((char*) HDR_MAC(p), mac);
return 0;

--- cut here ---

then, add this tcl code to your script or /tcl/lib/ns-lib.tcl. I'm not sure,
but this code MIGHT require the NOAH extension because that 
for {set i 0} { $i < [Node set nn_] loop.

--- cut here ---

# Given the node handle, return the haddr, iaddr or ID
proc NOAH_handle2iaddr { handle } {

        if { $handle == "-1" } {
                return "-1"

        set iaddr [$handle address?]
        return $iaddr

# Given the node's address in haddr, iaddr or ID, search and return the
# (TODO:) create an array at creation to store these pairs for faster lookup
proc NOAH_iaddr2handle { node_iaddr } {
        if { $node_iaddr == "-1" } {
                return "-1"

        set ns_ [Simulator instance]

        for {set i 0} { $i < [Node set nn_]} {incr i} {
                set node_handle [$ns_ set Node_($i)]
                if {[string compare [NOAH_handle2iaddr $node_handle]
$node_iaddr] == 0} {
                        return $node_handle
        return "-1"

## PROC: returns the handle of a given NODE, by its iaddress

## FIXME: assume itf(0), codigo C++ devolve mac dessa interface
## this code is used by the disabled ARP (option 2)
proc ARP_find_mobile_iaddr2mac { iaddr } {
        set ns_ [Simulator instance]
        set MH_node_handle [NOAH_iaddr2handle $iaddr]

        set ll [$MH_node_handle set ll_(0)]

        #puts "found: $MH_node_handle $ll"
        return $ll

Never mind.
The two lines work perfectly. They just happened to trigger another
problem, which is taken care of now :)
