Well, the most obvious epxlanation, then, would be that you die'd in your
callback, which is not caught by AnyEvent::DBI and would cause the symptoms
you experienced.

As a general rule, if somebody did some minimum effort (which you clearly
did) I certainly don't mind "false alerts" and would encourage anybody to
report issues to the list even if there is a chance of it being a user
error - often, the documentation can be improved that way (and in fact,
I amended the on_error documentation to mention that it doesn't cover
user-supplied callbacks).
