I use an app developed with Xojo. The app has an instruction "If MysqlServer.Connect Then". This instruction seems to return True, but the user does not appear among the list of connections.

This problem does not appear regularly, only sometimes.

How to repeat:
Create an app with the mysql connect instruction. Put this instruction in a 15 seconds timer. Launch the app, and wait for a connection to open. Do not close the connection. Put your computer to sleep and do not quit the app. Wait 24 hours before reactivating your computer. Check wether mysql.connect returns true and if at the same time there is no connection open.

Suggested fix:
no suggestion
