I think the plperl was a red herring.  Once dbi-link grabs a recordset, the 
rows are looped over, processed, and then inserted (based on some 
conditionals) into another table. Those inserts are wrapped in a 
begin....exception block, which, since it is in a loop, I suspect is creating 
the large number of childXids in cases where there are a large number of 
inserts.   I haven't tested that theory, but it seems logical, and should be 
easy enough to reproduce with a simple LOOP ... END LOOP in plpgsql.
