Please send your spread.conf, and the exact error you receive.  The 
problem you describe is usually caused by one of two things: an 
incorrect segment/host configuration in the spread.conf, or a host that 
is unable to identify itself using gethostname() and gethostbyname() as 
one of those in the configuration.  The solution to the latter problem 
is to start spread with the -n option.  Also, please clarify: is 
spread.log really empty, or is it just only containing the things that 
print every time, like the banner, init information, etc?
