The open/close shouldn't affect anything.

Which MySQL vesion are you now running?
Do you do any of the following queries:

- 'DELETE from table_name' without a WHERE
- 'DROP table_name'
- 'ALTER table_name...'

When this happens, has the server restarted?

Have you checked all suggestions in the MySQL manual section:
'MySQL server has gone away error' ?
