Right. DBIx-Class latest dev release (which should be 0.06 shortly) has fixes 
so it handles this fine; if you need this from Class::DBI you could either 
copy of the DBIx-Class code for it into a custom db_Main or just make sure you do


at the end of your setup code before apache starts spawning threads.
