Alright, I just noticed something odd about your rusage numbers, sorry :)

The protocol doc confirms that the stat is 'seconds.useconds'

When I run stats on one of my memcached instances:

STAT rusage_user 380053.070000
STAT rusage_system 479403.070000

Which is ~6334 and ~7990 minutes, together 14324m

Which matches ps:

 5051  9.1 44.1 1613452 1603440 ?   Rs   Feb24 14324:30 memcached -d -m 1500 -p 11211 -u admin -c 10000

Double checked memcached.c and that all looks right as well.

Are you parsing the memcached stats with something that's goofing a bit? telnet to it and compare the numbers.
