Thanks Wez, If all that happens is the query will fail, I can live with that. It's a simple SELECT query called over and over again. If the integer wraps around negative, I'm guessing that would probably have undesirable effects. If not, then I can let it run forever. What I don't want is something like a segfault. I'm considering making the application restart itself periodically to clear out the cobwebs.
