In light of the investigation which led to the first comment you
quoted, I withdraw the second one (which I think I actually made
chronologically prior to the first one).  I'm not exactly sure what
needs to happen here, but it seems to me that maybe the connection
cache should be changed to be keyed by user mapping OID.  That seems
like it would address the problem you mention here:
