That's pretty strange is /etc/httpd/conf/mod_gnutls/ a writable by
apache directory?

I'll see to fix the issue with "none", but to disable it you can just
comment it out. Why memchached doesn't work for you? (it requires
mod_gnutls to be build with memcached support)

If caching is an issue, due to space, you can also disable server-side
caching and enable GnuTLSSessionTickets to use the client as a "caching"
