Seems to be failing for me on both i386 linux and hpux when used 
with the most recent DBI. Using DBI 1.43 is passes on linux
(not tested on hp).

hpux perl is  v5.8.0
linux perl is v5.8.4

Possibly related to these lines in DBI.xs which were
changed in 1.44
( changelog says Fixed risk of utf8 flag persisting from one row to the next )

/* don't let SvUTF8 flag persist from one row to the next   */
/* (only affects drivers that use sv_setpv, but most XS do) */
while(i--)                  /* field 1 stored at index 0    */

psinnott@migo:/tmp/DBD-Sybase-1.04_10$ perl -I blib/lib/ -I blib/arch/ t/exec.t
