We are using Postgres heavily and do not make this observation.
Zope ("ZPsycopgDA") reconnects flawlessly to Postgres.

However, in principle, it is wrong to reconnect automatically.
It would be safer to reconnect and then raise an exception
(derived from "ConflictError") to retry the complete request.
