Are you using mod_log_spread or are you logging the messages yourself 
via custom code?  mod_log_spread does not respect "buffered mode" even 
if you ask it to.  However, if you are using buffered mode to a pipe or 
a program, and the program logs messages to Spread, things could be 
buffered.  Is this the case?
