Aha. Did some more digging....

Looks like the patch in:


buggers up the memcache sizes, so we try and remove
the entry we're actually adding.

Sorry for the noise :-). Please ignore bug


until I've dug into this some more.

Phew, the logic in the share mode memcache
code is *evil* (and I wrote the bloody thing
back in 2015 :-).

I'm glad it isn't broken :-).
