I am the original poster. Someone else has stolen my thread.
I AM calling disconnect  and the thing is wrapped in
sub handler {
    my $db=...



So, everything goes out of scope when handler finishes. I made it so to 
play nice with mod_per. NO globals
at all.

The apache run two site with such code. One site does not have a problem 
another builds up the connection.
It might be related to windows (it is all under windows and i never had 
such problem under freebsd).
