Crash after "stats" on 1.2.5

I wrote a quick little script to aggregate stats on our cluster and
managed to crash 4 of 11 servers after the first run and another
server (same cluster) after another couple of runs. We're running
memcached 1.2.5 compiled on Ubuntu 6.10 / 2.6.17-10-server kernel.
This happened to me once in my dev environment running 1.2.5 on Ubuntu
8.04 / 2.6.24-16-generic kernel but I've been unable to reproduce the
problem since. I ran about 50k connections at it without "luck." I
thought it may be related to memory issues so I tried filling the
cache at various levels and still could not crash it.
Anyone else seen this happen?
 script in question is a small perl script using Cache::Memcached
and simply connects, calls stats() and then disconnect_all()
