Eek. This is a guess, and only a guess.
What version of DBI, DBD::mysql, and MySQL are you running?

There is some hubub on the net about newer MySQL/DBI/DBD versions
bailing with the "transactions are not supported by database" error
loudly when you're using MyISAM tables instead of InnoDB tables. In the
past, autocommitng without InnoDB just did nothing silently.

So, make sure you are running InnoDB tables and not MyISAM tables for
starters. That's my first guess.
