DBIx::Class and Class::DBI both handle connection caching on their
own, so that is not where one would need Apache::DBI.  It's meant to
be used with plain DBI apps that aren't already doing connection
caching.  I will get the Apache::DBI docs updated to make this clear.

Usually when people have trouble it's due to clashes with some other
code that was trying to cache connections.  If you find a situation
like this again, a bug report of some kind would be appreciated.
