Since APC 3.1.3, there is a bug ( which produces warnings like "Potential Cache Slam Averted for Key" when slam defense is on and you're trying to write a key that already exists.

These is not a fix right now for this, but you can change the APC settings from php.ini file like below if possible:

apc.write_lock = 1
apc.slam_defense = 0

Was using Memcache and Memcached extensions, painfully bouncing between faults, failures and shortcomings of each.  My two cents: Neither of these old drivers has been a smash hit, repressing and slowly dooming of the true potential and full use of unix memcached.

The pain finally drove to me to try APC's apc_store and apc_fetch.  The results?  Instant success, no more errors, an order of magnitude (at least) speed boost, plus one less thing (memcached) to run.  Nice.  Never going back again.  Thank y'all.
