Cool :)

I have a working test case now which involves a custom debugobj with a query_end
method that injects an INSERT after the SELECT for the flash happened. debugcb()
didn't work for me. I suppose it's called _before_ the SELECT is executed.

However, I'm unsure how to detect if the error really was a duplicate entry
error or something else.

  die $@ if $@ && $@ !~ /duplicate/i;

This doesn't work because different DBs throw different errors.

Any thoughts?
