Bizarre.  Never seen that.

What method is libevent using?

Run like:

$ EVENT_SHOW_METHOD=1 memcached

You should see something like one of:

libevent using: kqueue
libevent using: epoll
libevent using: poll
libevent using: select

Also -- your kernel version?

When it works I can send it commands but when it locks up it says connection refused. Are there any specific circumstances that would cause it to do that?
