[Spread-users] Spread and large files

Does anyone know how Spread manages large files retransmissions? My limited
knowledge of multicast says that a multicast packet can not be longer than
64K. This means that Spread must break a large message into multiple 64K (or
smaller) packets. If a site requests retransmission, does Spread retransmit
the entire message or just the missing 64K packet?
