cannot allocate a subquery handle

In trying to complete testing for pset3, I ran into the following

could not allocate 1 handle(s) from pool "subquery"
while executing
"ns_db gethandle subquery"
invoked from within
"set db [ns_db gethandle subquery]..."
(procedure "cm_navbar" line 11)
invoked from within
invoked from within
"ns_return 200 text/html "
[ad_header "Section $section_name Template $template_name"]
[ad_context_bar_ws_or_index [list "/$section_name"
$section_name ..."
invoked from within
"if {![exists_and_not_null rest]} {
# know we're in /whatever (general)
set adp_page "
# expects section_name
ns_adp_bind_args section_nam ..."
invoked from within
"if {[regexp {/([A-z]+)/?(.*)} $observed_url_stub match
section_name rest]} {
# we know we're in movies or dining
if {![exists_and_not_null rest]} {
(procedure "cm_serve_section" line 7)
invoked from within

I think I need to restart Oracle or something to free up the handles,
but I can't. The problem may stem from the inability to call ns_db
releasehandle from within my private tcl scripts (it was complaining
so they had to go, so I could make progress).

PLease let me know if there's any way I can free up a database handle
and prevent this problem in the future.

DB pools

The server is trying to keep you from deadlocking. It will refuse to let you wait for a db handle from a pool from which you are currently holding a handle.

You must either pass the db handle into the procedure, or release the handle that you are holding from that pool.

Moreover, check to make sure you're not grabbing handles from the subquery pool on a main TCL page (grab two handles from main instead if you have to).
