I am creating a connection to a remote instance of MySQL is a .NET app using the System.Data.ODBC.OdbcConnection object.  All goes well for a period of time (approximately 1000 queries) and then I get the above error.  Any ideas?

How to repeat:
Create a connection, loop through a list of PersonID's, build a query on the fly, open the connection, send query to MYSQL.  After approximately 1000 iterations, the app fails.

If for every query you are creating a new connection and without
