I can't get to CVS, but I'd like this patch (I'm having crash problems with 3.17.01). Will it be released soon?

Hi, I've committed a fix to this to CVS. Basically there was a case where the internal limits on the number of packets to be processed and added at once was bypassed in the specific circumstances you found. So Spread tried to add all of the packets in a number of 100kb messages all at once, but could only store 8000 of them. Let me know if you still have problems with current CVS, or in the next version.
