Hello udpcast users!

When trying to multicast data to 7 machines, very often transfers abort
with this error message:

udp-receiver: receivedata.c:419: checkSliceComplete: Assertion `0' failed.
/bin/tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
/bin/tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
/bin/tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

Here's my environment:

Operating System is RedHat 8 with kernel 2.4.20-24.8smp
Linksys EG0008 Gigabyte Switch (supports 10/100 also), no config utility
by web or serial so I guess it's unmanaged
All the nodes have Intel pro/1000 network cards are in 1000Mbps
full-duplex as shown by the boot messages, except one node which has a
3Com PCI 3c905C Tornado in 100Mbps full-duplex (set with proper args to
the module)

I have tried running udpcast-sender in full-duplex and half-duplex. Has
anyone in this list encountered this error before?
