I've got several daemons (using Proc::Daemon) that scrape web pages and insert the info into a mysql database.
If a daemon gets killed (which they do a lot while testing) do I need to explicity close the mysql connection in a signal handler? Is there any other cleanup I should be thinking about?

Thank you, qq
