    Change that to:

        if (is_object($db_res)) {

    Right.  Before, it was succeeding on `strlen($db_res) > 0`
because - like an array - when called as a string, it was evaluating
to its variable type.  For example:

    $a = array('soo' => 'per', 'doo' => 'per');
    echo $a; // Prints: Array

    $b = new fakeClass(); // Presuming this class exists
    echo $b; // Used to print: Object id #1
