Memcached and failover (Problems: SERVER IS MARKED AS DEAD).

My question is regarding failover and memcached.

I have deployed Shibboleth with the memcached extension to two servers 
using LVS, and if I stop memcached on one of the servers, I get an error
message saying that the "SERVER IS MARKED DEAD". Which is fine, but it 
seems that shibd continues to try and use that memcached instance even 
after it has been marked as dead.

Is there any way to configure shibd to stop using memcached servers that 
have been marked dead ?
