Are you using Apache::DBI anywhere?  Make sure.  Have you verified that
the disconnect really gets called?  You can turn DBI tracing on to find
out what's happening.  I would suggest that you might be trapping a copy
of your $dbh in a closure or a global, but that shouldn't matter if you
actually call disconnect() on it.

Don't do that!  Opening database connections before the server forks
will wreak havoc when multiple processes try to use the same socket.
