Comment (by masquerade):

 You're barking up the wrong tree. What you should be looking at is passing
 $this->dbh to every query, and changing mysql_connect's fourth parameter
 (bool new_link) to true, so that you get a new connection for each
 instance of the class. Persistant connections often have serious adverse
 side-effects, and your milage will vary based on server specifications,
 configuration, and traffic. We unfortunately do not have the luxury of
 assuming everyone has a server configured properly enough to not die under
 the load that persistant connections potentially creates when it comes
 under high traffic.
