This may be the case, though no users have posted comments about it on the
manual page, which makes me think the function is safe in that regard. I
personally have never had a problem using mysql_insert_id(), even when
using mysql_pconnect(). If, however, that doesn't work for you, you can
always use the built-in function LAST_INSERT_ID() in your SQL query, as
documented here:
