You realize you (probably) can't fork() with an open DBI connection, right?
Similar problems occur with threads, I believe. The simple solution is to not
connect to the database until after your fork(). If you must access the
database in the parent process before you fork(), then make sure explicitly
disconnect before fork()-ing any children.

Honestly, I doubt it has anything at all to do with Class::DBI.
