[Spread-users] Spread 4.0 daemon "goes to sleep" on XP network disconnect

I probably wasn't sufficiently clear in my original question. At this
point in time I am ONLY using spuser as clients, to understand how
spread works.

The problem I'm referring to is that when you pull out the network cable
on a machine, the daemon on that machine doesn't notify the local spuser
clients of the network change until after you plug it back in.

Hope that makes things clearer.

We have noticed something similar to this.  In our case, part of the 
problem was mishandling a transitional and/or caused-by-network 
membership-change message.

We have learned a lot attaching a spuser process to the group to observe

all the message traffic when going through network changes (or any other

time).  You may see the messages that need to be paid attention.

If you think you observe an actual problem using spuser with your setup,

you ought to forward the spuser output to this group.
