Stuck in INIT/DROTHER

Neighbor went down.  Router log shows that the core switch's dead timer expired.

I checked:

Hello and dead timers are the same. 10, 40
No mismatch in network commands, areas, mask, or MTU
passive interface is not used on either side.

Router doesn't see core switch in 'sh ip ospf nei"

Otherwise debug ospf adj on both devices.
