Hi Crystal,

We were aware of some of these problems and some other issues that most 
likely were being caused by the skiplist code.  In the soon-to-released 
version of Spread 4 we have reimplemented the skip list code from 
scratch.  We will valgrind it and test the problematic scenarios you are 
running into before officially releasing it.  When the candidate release 
comes out you can help us do this testing too if you like.
