You'll never get it turned off!  NEVER!  Ha ha ha!

Or use this:
$Class::DBI::Weaken_Is_Available = 0;

Caching database data is never all that easy.  There are complex issues
involved.  You can try the caching in Class::DBI::Sweet or you can ditch
Class::DBI and try Rose::DB::Object, which has caching.  I think you'll
find it opens a can of worms, but may be worth it if your system is
having performance problems.
