Thanks for the help. That sure did result in the connections being
cleaned up. I'm still curious though. If the connections that are stored
within the default pool are not reused for subsequent operations, what
is the reason for keeping them around? Does this just make the
implementation easier, or is there another motivation for keeping these
connections around?

Thanks,
Brian
