I don't run -memcache, and my disk caches are always ext2 or ext3.
It's quite possible that the startup script has a bug in this area;
let's see what Russ has to say.

Note that the Breezy packages are still 1.3.81, which is rather old;
you may be missing some important memcache-related bug fixes. Better
upgrade to the latest 1.4.0 rc.
