You're totally correct.  I just ran a script that manually disconnects, and 
watched the DB for the disconnect, and then it selected using CDBI and I got 
a new connection.

Maybe I'll stick a manual disconnect into the code and see if that works.  I 
don't know why it's not working on my end when the connection is idle (and 
the db kills it).
