Hi there. I tried to send this a few days ago, but because of a glitch
with our server, my mail to the list went out with a different address
than my confirmation message, so it got bounced. Hopefully it's all
fixed and you're reading this.
Anyway, I found a bug in spread-3.17.3. Spread's C/C++ interface defines
NULL as (void *)0, which is perfectly fine for C, but not for C++.
The result is that if you include sp.h before including any of the
standard headers that define NULL, some compilers (including MSVC8, but
not MSVC7.1 or gcc 3.x) will spew out tons of errors.
Personally, I think it's a bit silly to include sp.h before any of the
standard headers. But obviously someone wanted it to work that way, or
they wouldn't have defined NULL in the first place.
Also, is a 3.17.4 (or 3.18) release intended (hopefully with this
patch)? Because I don't think we're ready to move to 4.0 as soon as it
License follows, then the patch. (If you're curious why the patch
removes the old #define and then adds the exact same line back, ask
