This is a bug which came up some months ago. If you search the list  
archives, you might be able to find it.

Unfortunately, I don't recall exact version numbers, but you'll  
likely find it corrected by updating your PHP version to a more  
recent one. Or by updating FreeTDS. Or both. Sorry, don't remember  
which one. :)
