Yes. The default for these are very high which often causes problems for 
applications that don't implement connection pooling. However, as I 
previously said this is unlikely to be the source of the problem.

At that rate there is no reason on the Zope side for the connection being 
dropped. There could be a problem with the underlying Python driver and thus 
the ZopeDA so you might want to install the latest version of both:

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=22307

MySQL 3.2 is still supported.

But you should also run Zope in debug mode and see what gets written to the 
error log.
