tds_process_col_info() questions

These questions are about the code for tds_process_col_info().

(1) The SYBTEXT portion drains 12 bytes, but here (SQLServer 6.5) it
    looks like 13 is the correct value.  Is 12 right for some other

(2) All the tmp_rest stuff is just supposed to drain any remaining
    bytes as indicated by the hdrsize, correct?  It looks like old
    code that is no longer correct.

I have a cleaned up version of tds_process_col_info() which I'll 
upload tomorrow if no problems appear.
