The disconnection code is borked too; if you connect, do some work with 
statement handles, and disconnect again, and then repeat many times in 
the same process, you'll crash out eventually.

The annoying thing is that there are trivial patches on rt.cpan.org to 
fix it, and they've been there for ages, and they aren't getting applied. :(

Do you know if Audrey's fork has fixes applied, or is it just simply an 
upgraded-to-version-3.6 thing?
