A random-based distributed protocol for computing spanning trees in anonymous networks is presented. This cannot be achieved with deterministic (non-random) protocols. The distributed actuation of the protocol will succed if the network is representable as T-prime graph. Otherwise, the attempt may fail (though the probability of failure seems to be small in many practical cases). Based on some runtime experiments, the protocol's avarage message complexity is briefly discussed. [<A HREF="http://www.stefan-gruner.de/spanning.ps.gz">Download Paper *.ps.gz</A>]
