I agree. I don't see anything in Perrin's patch that should cause this

Could it be a MySQL thing? I know there have been some DBDs (notably older
versions of DBD::Pg, I believe) where ping() doesn't give the correct
response under some circumstances and a new dbh is created, which breaks the
transactional model.

Nesting transactions could also give the same error, but Peter said it worked
when he reverted his Ima::DBI, so that's not the problem obviously.
