Also, if I use DBD::Sybase and add the "packetSize=8192" to the connect
string, I get "Unknown property 5" written to stderr by the connect. The
string looks something like this:

my $dbh =
'me' , 'pwd') or print "Can not connect to SS";

If I do something like the following, with the interfaces param, the
"Unknown property 5" message is not generated:

my $dbh =
l/freetds/interfaces", 'me' , 'pwd') or print "Can not connect to SS";

However in both cases the connect fails, but the " or print ... " does not
get called. An error seems to be being generated and left in a buffer, since
my Perl error handler does get called as soon as I turn it on right after
the connect (with  "$dbh->{syb_err_handler} = \Err;") No values are passed
in the arguments to the Err sub. and the connection is not established.

Ok, I see how the output params are coming in from the wire, but
unfortunately that doesn't reconcile very well with how dblib/ctlib wants
to use them...C'est la vie.  I'm going to let it rattle around for a bit
and see how the best way to do this is.

Probably get something whipped up over the coming weekend.
