The problem comes from not setting the DBlibrary version (ie calling
dbsetversion()). This call enables System 10 features in DBlibrary
which are turned off by default. In sybperl 2.03 and later, the
dbsetversion() function is automatically called during intialization
when sybperl has been built with DBlibrary version 10.x or later.
You can get around this problem by adding
in the DBlib.xs initialize() function, right after the call to dbinit()
and re-build sybperl, or get the newer 2.03 or 2.04 versions.
