If you have a currently-executing statement handle (eg. looping though query
results), you may get some complaints from that (something along the lines of
telling you that you should call finish() first), but generally destruction
of a database object will close the connection (at least, that seems to be
the case with DBD::Pg handles).

Why not just disconnect before the condition?
# Do some other stuff here.
last if (some_condition == true);
seems to me to make more sense that way...
