Debian 32bit Sarge with a HUGEMEM kernel patch and 6 GB of memory and 1
GB configured for memcached. I grew to about 1.5 GB then started
throwing the errors.

The stress test script generated a random sized data packet (1-20KB in
size) then does a set and an immediate get and compares the set and and
got value, it counts it as an error if they do not match. this was done
via a perl script. Sorry, I don't have more specific data, I would have
to rerun the tests if I can get the server.

The Message Subject "Stress Test Script" on 6/9/2005 is the script we
used for testing.
