Hi all,

Valgrind memtool issues the following complaint while running my Spread 
4.0RC2 application:

==8997== Syscall param select(timeout) points to uninitialised byte(s)
==8997==    at 0x3B6221: (within /lib/libc-2.3.5.so)
==8997==    by 0x8ED088B: SP_connect_timeout (in 
==8997==    by 0x8C0D469: Dist::VSpread::timerCB() (VSpread.cpp:1769)

Should spread clear its timeout struct before the select() syscall?  The 
manpage seems to indicate it is probably not a problem.

Platform is Linux Fedora 2.6.17-1.2141_FC4smp.
