This behaviour concerns connection pooling, when you call .close method a connection isn't not closed but added to the pool. When you open a connection is drawn from the pool. You can read about using connection pooling in the documentation for MySQLDirect .NET and MSDN. If you need to disable connection pooling you should add parameter pooling = false in your connection string.
