[Spread-users] Starting spread daemon during computer reboot

I am building an application that uses spread for communication.One of 
the requirements of the application is that it should start 
automatically when ever the computer reboots.
The application is being developed on Fedora Core 4. To fulfill this 
requirement I have put the command to start the application in 
/etc/rc.d/rc.local file. The application starts the spread daemon and 
then connects to it. However when we start the spread daemon during 
computer reboot, the daemon quits immediately and the application 
cannot connect to it. I have set the default user/group for the spread 
daemon as "root" in the spread configuration file. After the computer 
has restarted completely, giving the same command starts the 
application without any problem. Has anyone encountered this issue
