Great.  In context, we have a Spread-based app with a large test suite, and
the setup and teardown methods for the individual tests routinely reuse the
same set of private names, establishing a new connection(s) in the setup and
disconnecting in the teardown.  Other parts of the tests rely on those
names.  The tests all passed under 3.16.2, but started suffering massive
"Connection rejected -- name not unique" failures when Jeremy tried 3.17.0.
I'm surprised that he can still write C code <wink>.
