Your references are fine - the Database is the problem. Using Oracle we had a similar issue. We kind of narrowed it down to the following:
Create a $dbh.
Fork.
Child disassociates from the parent.
Parent exits.
Child's $dbh hopefully stays alive.
Parent's $dbh goes out of scope.
Parent's $dbh sends close signal to database.
Database sends signal that the connection was closed.
Child's $dbh gets signal that the connection was closed.
Child's $dbh closes.
Alternate possibility goes something like the parent signals that he is done and database closes the door on the child. Child tries to use the connection but the door is already closed - so the child closes its own $dbh.

There is lot of magic in DBI. There is a lot going on in the specific driver for your database. I'd be very careful about forking and trying to make you're own persistent connections or sharing the $dbh around. In the end we found a way to disassociate the file descriptors so that the closing signals wouldn't be sent. Kind of a hack fix really.
my @a=qw(random brilliant braindead); print $a[rand(@a)];

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
