Thanks for information. 

After my investigation with spread daemon code, I was able to find point from where daemon gets killed. 
file membership.c(of version 1.0)  : line 1428

Below is code snippet for same.

ret=  Net_ucast_token( My.id, &send_scat );

Why does Net_ucast_token() method return a negative value when, 
SpreadDaemon1 Ethernet is deactivated using neat tool on linux box ??

Could you help me understand more about it ??
