[Spread-users] SP_join from different tread as SP_receive

Spread is thread safe so long as you use the proper client library.

What version of Spread are you using?  If you are using Spread 4, then the 
library by default is thread safe.  If you are using Spread 3, then make 
sure you are using libtspread.a or libtspread.so (notice the 't' -- it 
stands for Threadsafe).

Are you currently using a thread safe version of the client library?

I don't see any reason why what you are trying to do would not work (other 
than not using a thread safe verison of the library).
