The FreeTDS implementation of dbbind() was at odds with the documentation:
it accepted -1 as a length to mean "buffer is big enough". Documentation
from both vendors says the proper value is zero, not -1. I must say I'm
amazed no one pointed that out before.
dbbind() now fails if varlen < 0. I was unable to find an appropriate
error message, so it doesn't call the error handler; it just fails with a
message to the log.
I changed dbbind, bsqldb, and about 15 unittests. Unfortunately, I can't
commit the changes now because SF is having server difficulties afaict.
So the patch is attached in case you want it.
