comment What are the disadvantages of using persistent connection in PDO
@MichaelDibbets We replaced the application server a few months ago, and turned of pconnect to see if the three second bug was still around. It wasn't. It's been resolved by proxy, I suppose. The answer below with regard to mysqli_change_user is still probably the best workaround for people that have to do persistent connections in an application not designed to deal with state problems.

revised Automatic Repair fails to repair my PC
In Windows 8.1 (and perhaps earlier versions), the scannow flag to the sfc tool requires this added forward slash to function properly. Other changes to reach the 6 char minimum.

comment Is mysql_real_escape_string() broken?
@Pacerier, as of when I wrote that comment four years ago, no, it used to not work. "DSN" == "connection string." Since then, as noted in the linked manual page, it has been made to work.
