My understanding is that Sybperl will disconnect some time after the handle
goes out of scope, but it's up to the Perl garbage collector to decide
exactly when it happens.  Even if a it usually happens when the handle goes
out of scope, you can't depend on it in future versions of Perl.

Sybperl disconnects automatically when the database handle ($Y in your 
example script) goes out of scope, or becomes undefined.

So for example:

   my $dbh = Sybase::CTlib->ct_connect(...);
# Here the connection has been closed, because $dbh has gone out of
# scope.
