MySQLdb Question

Can anyone tell me why I need to connect twice in order to set
cursorclass=MySQLdb.cursors.DictCursor?

If I try to include this argument the first time, I get an error.  The only
way I can get it to work without the error is to recreate the connection
object a second time like this.

db1 = MySQLdb.connect(user = config.user, passwd=config.passwd, host=
config.host, db = "prweb")
db1 = MySQLdb.connect(user = config.user, passwd=config.passwd, host=
config.host, db = "prweb",cursorclass=MySQLdb.cursors.DictCursor)

Thanks,

David McInnis
