No, not if your code has already connected to the database. The script
should not be making a CONNECT either. It sounds as if you need to

Why do you need to assign the ib_connection at run-time? If this is
necessary, then wouldn't it be necessary to test whether it is already
assigned, sthg like
if ib_connection = nil then...
