Sounds more like a locking problem to me.  Apache::Session::Memcached
has no locking, so it's "last save wins."  That can lead to
overwriting data, especially if you load the session on accesses to
images or JS files which are simultaneous with the main page load.

You could try changing it to use a locking module.  It's fairly simple
to do.  Just look at the source.
