no, no 2nd db handle.  The context for this is that I am creating a
new object like so:

my $obj  = ObjClass->new();

I then get an object *without* an identifying value and then when I call:


the object should get an identifying value (previously, via the
oidStatus method in Pg) and be committed to the DB. This happened when
I was using the Pg module, but now that I have switched to the DBI
(DBD::Pg) I am getting an undefined value for the unique id.  The
objects are being saved in the DB but my system has no immediate
knowledge of them because the id is coming back as undefined.

Like I said, maybe I am screwing up, but it does not look like it.  I
will do more investigation and see what I turn up.

thanks for your time,
