PHP's more than likely just loosing persistent connections to the DB.

It's a coding thing I think... You need to call mysql_connect() on every
page where you need to use the database, even if you use mysql_pconnect().

If there's a mysql specific error, I think MySQL would most definitely write
something to the error log...

Tweaking your my.cnf and php.ini may also help you cause here...
