if thes works in the past I'd see it as a fluke of nature. As far as I 
know we did not change anything in relation to the headers

But this works


the lower casing does not belong in the headers, it should go into the 
\sectionmark macros (which is where \memUChead lives)

please post memoir problems on comp.text.tex, the tex live list if for 
the distribution as a whole not problems with single units
