I've never encountered the problem, so I cannot comment on it.

The message you refer to says to comment the closeLayer() function call 
- you probably dont want to do this on a windows machine since it will 
keep the connection to the database alive forever.  Linux will 
automatically close the connection to the database when the process dies.

Anyone else found this problem?
