Mea culpa. Thanks for the reminder I have been away from Perl for a good while.
Unfortunately the Class::DBI update() method does not work unless the $obj has an id defined and part of the problem here is that the insert id isn't in $obj unless find_or_create gets an explicit undef or an explicit $id.
"The man who grasps principles can successfully select his own methods.
The man who tries methods, ignoring principles, is sure to have trouble.
