When you deactivate the ethernet interface I think any sockets that are bound on 
that interface will fail.  So when Spread goes to send a message after you've 
disabled the interface the socket returns an unexpected error.  Spread doesn't 
know how to deal with one of its sockets mysteriously failing so it quits.

Again, there is no Spread version 1.0.  The current versions are 3.17.4 or 4.0.0.
