Tom> Here's a little background on our install:

Tom> Solaris 2.5.1, Ultra Enterprise 3000 OpenClient: 11 Sybase ver.
Tom> 11.9.2 perl version 5.005_02 Tcl libs?: no Berkley db: no

This is a bug in DB-Library 11.1.1 EBF7883 or later, where dbpoll()
with a timeout value of -1 returns immediately, instead of waiting
until a response from Sybase on any open DBPROCESS is received.

I believe that a case has been opened with Sybase about this (not by
me - I'm a lowly consultant and don't have a support contract ;-)

You can edit DBlib/t/dblib.t and change the dbpoll(-1) call to
dbpoll(0xffff) and that should fix the problem.
