You should be getting better stability than that.  Are the processes exhausting 
memory or anything?

Fix the logging problem first so we can see if Spread is seg faulting or if it 
is committing suicide through an Alarm w/ a diagnostic message.

It depends upon which options you turn on.  Turning all of them on could have a 
sizable performance impact.  Let's narrow down what is causing the crashes first 
so we can figure out which options to turn on.
