There are two potential issues.

If a receiver isn't reading fast enough, it will be disconnected when
the server finds it has over 1000 messages queued for that particular
connection.  This is a feature.

If a sender sends too much data too fast, a bug in Spread 3.16.1 may
cause the daemon to mistake this condition for a protocol error and
disconnect the sender.  This is fixed in 3.16.2 (which I think is in
CVS but not officially released?).

Search the Jan/Feb list archives for clues.
