I'm not sure of the cause of the error you describe.  What it sounds 
like is as if you had a %h in the EventLogFile line, but that 
permissions were being set wrong somehow.  However, please remove the 
segment description:

	Spread_Segment {

from your configuration file (you shouldn't have one of these if you 
have another segment, or more than one host running Spread).  Then let 
me know if this fixes your problem, or not.
