My earlier patch for this was not correct (but please apply the 90% of
it that concerns not dying when $sth is undef).  The right way is

    BEGIN {
        # Try to avoid charset problems.
        $ENV{LC_ALL} = 'C';
        use_ok('DBI');
        use_ok('DBD::Sybase');
    }

With this the test passes.
