Memory leak with 1.1.12?

I'm seeing some odd behaviour with memcached taking more ram than the
startup options should let it. Memcached 1.1.12 with libevent 1.1a
running on RHEL 3 stock 2.4 kernel (non-epoll) with data being pushed
in from the perl API. It is invoked with:
/usr/local/bin/memcached -d -m 250 -l `hostname -i` -p SOMEPORT -u root
...so, it should use only 250 megs, right? But after a few (tens of)
hours, I start seeing this line in 'top':
22000 root 25 0 351M 351M 564 R 6.8 11.6 64:20 1
Using 351MB? Some get as high as 400MB. Is this a known issue, or am
I starting the server with the wrong parameters?
