Description Carlton Brown 2005-06-07 23:45:51 UTC
The wrapper class for MW, BagOTurckStuff, does not check the return 
value of mmcache_put.  Thus, functions that depend on this caching 
are unaware that caching has failed, and unexplained failures

to handle or log exceptional cases

2) Add warning comment in LocalSettings.php that Turck data caching 
is not certified for all environments and may cause message 
substitution failures
