Description:
In
namespace MySql.Data.MySqlClient
internal abstract class Driver
public bool IsTooOld()

The time is compared using the second property
if (ts.Seconds > Settings.ConnectionLifeTime)
This property doesn't count the minutes
So it cycles between Driver.IsTooOld()= TRue , Driver.IsTooOld() = False  every minute.

How to repeat:
Change Seconds to TotalSeconds property like this:

Suggested fix:
public bool IsTooOld()
{
	TimeSpan ts = DateTime.Now.Subtract(creationTime);
	if (ts.TotalSeconds > Settings.ConnectionLifeTime)
		return true;
	return false;
}
