Strange perl Cached::Memcached behavior

I actually didn't change any of the behavior options in my basic tests, 
which is perhaps why we were seeing no performance improvements.
I must say that we're very excited about the consistent hashing though.

In any case, this post wasn't supposed to be about libmemcached... All I 
really want to know is if someone has any idea why a basic counter using 
Cache::Memcached would be failing under heavy (but not ludicrously 
heavy) load...

Kind regards
