The server hosting the web page looks to be creating the connecting
immediately to the MySQL server (verified by mytop and tcpdump).
Troubleshooting MySQL connections isn't my forte - to now the
connections have always "just worked" so there hasn't been much of a
need. Another thing that has led me away from thinking database
problem is that this existed when the database was hosted locally and
when it was on our production database server.

Sorry for the delay in posting. 2-3 attempts before the problem
"resolves" itself makes troubleshooting slow.

Thanks to all that have replied.
