This looks to me like you could be asking for an infinit loop.

It generally isn't a good idea to perform actually connect and disconnect
operations in an error handler. it is better to set some flags and then have
the operations be performed in some independent fashion.

For example, you would flash a message to the user that the connection has
been lost and what they should do. Then, after the exception is handled they
would go and do whatever it was they needed to.
