Hi Roy,

some message types are reserved by the Secure Spread library and another
library (Flush).  Can you tell me exactly what was the message type value
you used?

I will add the info about the reserved message types on the documentation.

I suppose that when you received the message  you checked first
that it is a regular message (Is_reg_mess macro) and not other special
message (membership message, transitional message or Flush_Request
