Cool! Someone actually reads the release notes :-)
For DBlibrary I call dbsetversion(DBVERSION_100) if I think that the
library version is > 10.x
Commenting out that call makes Sybase DBlibrary compatible with the
unpatched version of MS-SQL 7.
Unfortunately you can't do the same thing for CLient Library, so
Sybase::CTlib and DBD::Sybase still require the patched version of
MS-SQL 7 to work.
