The tli stuff (hex numbers) definately won't work.  We use sockets only,
sybase uses tli or socket depending on the platform.

Unfortunately the DBD::Sybase tests really only give you a pass/fail which
isn't terribly helpful.  Either run the test individually (go into the
test directory and run 'perl login.t' for instance. Otherwise get SQSH and
try to connect with that.  It's a lot more helpful in debugging simple
connectivity problems.
