What sort of setting does the MySQL server you are running have for timing
out idle connections?  Could it be that you aren't "hitting" it often
enough?  In which case, going away a lot is normal.

(I have that problem regularly with a desktop query client (CocoaMySQL for
Mac OS X).  It responds to a vanished connection by hanging unresponsively
until killed...your code is clearly better than that.  ;-))
