Flushing memcache with -M flag

First message to the list so I'd like to say thanks to Danga for
developing such a useful tool :)
I have a problem regarding flushing the memcache of all data when the -M
flag is invoked at startup. eg:
memcached -d -M -m1 -l127.0.0.1 -p11211
I am attempting to use a cluster of memcache servers as a fast data
server where data never expires and cannot be overwritten unless
explicitly deleted or replaced. For this reason, all of my expiries are
set to zero.
If I don't invoke the -M flag, data is overwritten by new items of data
when allocated memcache memory has been exhausted. I therefore require
the -M flag so that my cluster will fail over to the next memcache
server. All of this is fine and works great. However, when I attempt to
flush the server of data either via:
(php) Memcache::flush() or
telnet 127.0.0.1 11211, flush_all
None of the data is flushed.
Is there a way to force the memcache to flush all of its data from
memory when the -M flag is invoked?
Thanks a lot for your time :)
