Hmm, not good. I set up freetds on a Sparc here which is also a
bigendian processor. I'm running tds4.2 against MSSQL 7.0
and don't get your error from tdstest, but that might be because
of the different servers. I did notice a likely bug in the message
handling, but can't tell if that's a bug in freetds or in MSSQL.
I'll try to find time to check the dblib unittests, but I don't
think I'm going to be able to figure this out from here.
If you set TDSDUMP and send the dumplog from running tdstest, I
can tell you if that corresponds with what my Sparc is doing,
for what it's worth.
