No I don't, and as I said above the statements were executed by DBD
regardless of the severity 16 (which sounds really weird indeed).

I switched back to an older Version of my script which still works
fine, I can't reproduce the error no more at the moment. Maybe this 
was a very nasty side-effect from some other operation.

Thank you both for help,
