drb server opening hundreds of connections to mysql server

Reported by Jens | February 13th, 2010 @ 12:39 AM

the drb server in latest acts_as_ferret trunk (as of 10/3/07) slowly keeps opening more and more connections to our mysql server on another machine until we reach the limit of 256 max connections. very bad. the ferret drb server opens about a connection or two a minute, without closing the old connections. this is a very busy high-traffic website, but i believe the problem even occurs when there aren't that many requests going to the drb server. this occurs even after i comment out the line with 'reconnect!' that was recently added. the additions to the trunk that reconnect to mysql when the drb server thinks it has disconnected seem to be causing this problem, as i didn't experience this before those changes.
