[Spread-users] GGT bug

Currently there exists a bug in the groups state transfer that will 
cause spread to hang under certain conditions caused by cascading 
network changes.  The fix will be included in the next release of 
Spread.  However, for those who need/want a quick fix now, the following 
  *minor* code change should solve the problem.

The affected file is groups.c, which should be under spread/daemon.

Line 1780 currently reads as:
   "memb_id_ptr = &buf[ Message_get_data_header_size() ];"

To solve the problem, change this to:
   "memb_id_ptr = buf;"
