The problem is that standard LaTeX page definitions do not allow the
precise layout design which is one of memoir's purposes, so the package
does things differently. The default values are ones which are used
very frequently, so new users of memoir often don't notice the
difference. But when you want to move away from the default you have
problems. That's how I found out that memoir does things differently.
