That would be DBD::Sybase 1.07.

Could you try DBD::Sybase 1.07_04, available from please ?

(I use that version at the moment, and use it to connect to rep servers as 
well as ASE...)

I'm not sure what the official release numberis , but the version listed 
in is 1.90 

Are there any known issues with this release? When I try to connect to a 
repserver I get this error: 

Msg 2056, Severity 12, State 0: 
Server 'liverep1', Line: 0:
Line 1, character 1: Incorrect syntax with 'sp_datatype_info'. 
Can't use an undefined value as an ARRAY reference at 
/usr/perl5/site_perl/5.8.4/sun4-solaris-64int/DBD/ line 355, 
 line 2.

Obviously it's trying to run this stored procedure on connection. 

It works fine when connecting to ASE, and an earlier version of 
(1.41) installed on one of our older servers works against repserver.
