[Tinyos-help] TOSSIM Issue

I'm having an issue with running my simulation in TOSSIM (TinyOS version
1.1.14) and I'm really hoping someone can help me out.
I'm doing a very simple experiment with the network topology shown below
(in the picture):
Node 0 is my "Base Station" and node 5 is a data source that is supposed
to send me back sensor readings. I have created a TOSSIM topology file
to represent this topology. The idea is that Node 0 broadcasts out an
interest message which is then re-broadcasted until it reaches node 5.
At this point, node 5 begins sending data back to any neighbours that
requested it (2 and 4).
Here's the problem: Data flows on the 0-1-2-5 route perfectly.
However, when node 4 receives the data and attempts to unicast it to
node 3, node 3 never hears the message. I have turned on the AM debug
messages and it seems that 4 does indeed send a message, but there is
nothing in the logs to indicate that node 3 hears it.
The strange part is, if I run the simulation approx. 10 times, node 3
might receive the message 1 out of the 10 times (very small success
rate). Every other simulation run, the message never gets received.
Does the order the links appear in my .nss file make any difference?
I'm really hoping someone can offer some insight into a solution because
I've tried everything I can think of to fix this problem. I am
including my actual .nss topology file below for reference (maybe I'm
missing something obvious). I'd really appreciate people's help with
this matter !
