I have gone through my code and now carefully close all cursors.  The error
still recurs sporadically.  There's too much code to post, and the code works most
of the time.  I do not have any repeatable way to reproduce the problem.

In searching around the mysql.com web site I encountered a suggestion to
set the thread_stack larger.  I will try that, but would love to get any
other suggestions.
