"INVALID ARGUMENTS" error for all commands except memcapable on Debian 6 (memcached 1.4.5 & libmemcached 1.0.10)

Asked by JmZ

Have I simply configured memcached incorrectly or is this a bug?

I'm on Debian 6 with memcached 1.4.5 and libmemcached 1.0.10, along with libmemcached-tools.
If I start up memcached with the default debian config, it loads fine and the log remains completely empty.

If I then try run ANY libmemcached-tools binary against it *except* memcapable, they all fail with "INVALID ARGUMENTS".

memcapable -host

Works fine apart from "ascii verbosity" which times out.

I can telnet to memcached and execute commands directly just fine (e.g. stats).

# memcping --verbose --servers=""

This is the same for all commands. This also means PHP5 is unable to connect as it uses libmemcached.

I even went to all the trouble of building from source, both libmemcached and memcached, latest versions. Exact same error, someone care to explain?

Can you help with this problem?
