I'm hoping this is just a bug in the documentation... The notes at http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/cache/ list that the 'cmemcache' client should be used with django. However, this client is badly deprecated and was based on an unreliable library.
It's more highly recommended to use the python-libmemcached library, which is based after the modern shared library, or simply the pure python one.
We're getting a lot of complaints of broken django installs due to this, so please, update it as soon as is reasonable :)
