[Spread-users] Multigroup multicast with Perl API

I'm having difficulty sending a multigroup multicast message using the
Perl API. The Spread::multicast function seems to be expecting an array
ref for the group parameter, but this seems to prevent the message from
being recieved at all. Ie.

Spread::multicast($mailbox, RELIABLE_MESS, 'GroupA', 0, $message);

works, but

Spread::multicast($mailbox, RELIABLE_MESS, ['GroupA'], 0, $message);

doesn't (with one or more groups).

Using Spread 3.17.1, with Spread.pm 3.17.1-1.05 on Debian Linux.
