Thanks, yes that was enough. In my system connect_info returns an
arrayref rather than a hashref, but it has the dsn as element 0.

I had read the description of connect_info at
but from that I got the impression that it was a mutator method rather
than an accessor. It says nothing about a return value. I had decided it
would be dangerous to try calling that.

So thanks very much for the pointer :)
