Change 193886 had a related patch set uploaded (by Catrope):
Don't claim all links exist when ParserCache misses

https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/193886

This was caused by the link cache population code not handling ParserCache misses correctly. My patch addresses this, but someone should also figure out why the parser cache keeps missing in beta. Maybe memcached is broken there?
