Can you "prove --verbose t/33storage_reconnect.t" on
that test so we can get the details?  There isn't a
lot going on in that test that I can see would go
easily wrong and also not cause lots of other tests to

You could also try debugging the test a bit, checking
to see if the $schema returns something valid, etc. 
It's actually a small test to check if the system
properly reconnects when you lose a database handle.

I always like to toss in a:

ok $schema, 'Got a Schema object';
isa_ok $schema, 'DBIx::Class::Schema';

just to be sure. 

If the test is returning a valid $schema you might
want to add some debug output to try to determine
what's actually happening.  If you look at the actual
test you'll see the first test is simply:

cmp_ok(@art, '==', 3, "Three artists returned");

I'd add some debug to see how long @art actually is,
for example.
