There are a lot of queries that are being sent against the database multiple times a second that are identical, version checks for the same addons, etc.
(Not sure what else to put here?)
I'm not sure this is the API but seems entirely possible.
Is web server traffic spiking as well? on what pages?

ltrim queries to get rid of leading whitespace
Queries with leading whitespace were not memcached. Ouch.
morgamic, please review.
FIXED in r10123 (trunk) and r10124 (reskin branch). Marking push-needed.
Woo good find!
heh, thanks -- I just want to be good friends with the database, that's all ;)
This is live.
