Most of the time it's working fine, but a too large percentage of the time I'm getting "Error establishing database connection".  A short time later it'll work fine with no changes.

As I recall, the my.cnf file we ship has only one setting in it, because that's the only setting that differs from the defaults. You can add any other settings to the file if you want additional changes from the defaults. Consult MySQL documentation to learn what options are available.
