I should have added that I'm using spread on a 802.11b ad-hoc network.  
I haven't had any problems with up to 20 segments, but my recent test 
with 25 segments has given me serious performance issues.  This 
discussion may be moot, as I am going try a multicast routing protocol 
and configure spread to use multicast.
