I experienced a similar problem. We are also using spread on a LAN, with 4 machines sending 500 messages of ~200 bytes a second (~= 3Mbps total),
and once every few seconds the "SP_multicast" call was blocked for about a second.
We haven't solved that :-( , we just use a buffer to make the Spread sending a-sync, so our main application won't stuck.
