That's not a bad idea either, where would that be done, or how?

It may or may not, since if the connection really is bad it is tested
and %DBI_connect_bad is reset to 1 anyways, so just resetting the flag
would likely cause it to just be set again the next time this code is
called.  What I can do instead is add in some logging to find out, maybe
I can see when the connection is actually going bad?
