[Spread-users] Socket Timeout

Hi Again Alberto,

I looked into this problem... it appears to be caused by a race
condition between the main thread and the listening thread.  When you
disconnect, it instructs the listener to exit by setting a flag, and
the listener may or may not actually exit before the disconnect method
closes the socket.  If the listener exits first, you won't see that
message, otherwise you will.  I'll think about a solution to avoid
that output, but for now you shouldn't worry about it -- it's not a
real error.  However, if you wanted to try to avoid it, use
SpreadConnection's stopListener() method a second or so before calling
