I've been having similar issues with cmemcache.  I've also noticed
that it kills the process when it can't contact the memcached (or it
goes into an infinite loop).  This is no doubt due to how it deals
with libmemcache, which is logging/error-message heavy.

I saw an earlier email about some PHP bindings that wrapped
libmemcache that had similar issues, but it didn't go into much detail
about how stuff got fixed.

For now I'm switching back to
