We found that it's tied to the presence of virtual machines running
spread daemons in our segment.

So we've since removed the virtual machines from our segment, and no
longer run spread on the virtual machines.  We've since seen perfect

Although I still have no idea *why* the virtual machines cause
problems for spread.  For what it's worth, our VM setup is VMware
Workstation verion 5.5.1 build-19175.  Host operating system is
Windows XP Home.  Guest OS (running spread) is CentOS 4.3.
