You're trying to run a copy sybperl that was compiled for a more
recent version of OpenClient than the one that is installed on your
When Sybase::CTlib gets loaded it calls cs_ctx_alloc() with the
highest "version" value that it can find (so that new features in OC
12.0 and 12.5 can be enabled). In your case you have a sybperl binary
that was built for 12.0 or 12.5 but an OpenClient library that is
older (11.x, or 12.0).
You need to either rebuild sybperl on this box, or upgrade OpenClient.
