Strange perl Cached::Memcached behavior

Well that's what I was expecting, but from my tests I was getting that 
it (Cache::Memcached::libmemcached) was slightly slower (or at least 
roughly the same; but certainly not an order of magnitude faster!).

But at least it seems to work correctly, and we're going to trial it as 
a drop-in replacement for Cache::Memcached. Hopefully our problems will 
go away and we might even see that 4 to 10x performance gain.

But any ideas on why my incrs might be failing?
