Hmm.. The "MySQL server has gone away" part of this message is being
produced by the mysqlclient library. Are you able to correlate this
message with any other activity or does it occur randomly? At what
frequency do are you get those messages? Also, are you connecting to a
database on the same host or a remote host?
