Human Checks

Has anyone other than the folks here at LiveJournal implemented Human Checks (e.g. Anonymous commenting). I'm starting to get sick of the spam comments on my installation, and would love to implement this feature. Here's the catch though - Any time I attempt to enable human checks:

anonpost => 1,

I lose the connectivity to my database (cannot find master handle, etc). If I disable the check, it is magically able to talk to the database again. I do have a blobserver setup (this is a dev box, MogileFS will be used for production).

I've been digging through the Apache error logs, and there is very little being spit out in the way of helpful errors.

Any help in tracking this down would be appreciated.
