thanks for this.  the closest i could get to your spec was sybase 15.5, 
freetds-0.64 and DBD::Sybase 1.10.  With these values, your program ran 
perfectly on centos 5.3 and lenny.  however, on fedora, it failed to 
even connect due to "*** stack smashing detected ***: /usr/bin/perl 
terminated" which sounds as if freetds-0.64 did have some issues. 
freetds-0.82 copes just fine, if that's any good to you.
