Hi Theo,

I really am not sure what the problem is.

I run Spread and immediately I run a client program (sptuser) that
connects and joins a group.

Spread takes a few seconds to complete the membership, but once it
does, the client gets a response for the join. Is your case different?

In general, forking, setsid, etc. are things I would usually avoid if not
necessary in order to keep the code simple and portable to any kind of
environment (not only unix).


            :) Yair.
