Yes, that is probably completely different problem. But you should see
at least some DBDES packets when neighbor state became "exchange". If
you have enabled logging of events and packets, these should be in BIRD

Could you send me that part of log?

If one side is stuck in "exchange" state, what is the state
of the other side?
