DBD::Sybase-0.21 hangs on testing

Well, I renamed the test that was hanging, fail.t, to xxx.t so it came
last.  Here's my results:

dmr6:baldwin:17:DBD-Sybase-0.21:% make test
PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /bin/perl -Iblib/arch -Iblib/lib
-I/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.00503/sun4-solaris -I/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.00503
-e 'use Test::Harness qw(&runtests $verbose); $verbose=0; runtests @ARGV;'
t/main..............Changed database context to 'master'.
Invalid object name 'sys_users'.
Use of uninitialized value at t/main.t line 97.
FAILED test 8
        Failed 1/12 tests, 91.67% okay
t/place.............?-style placeholders aren't supported with this SQL Server.

This seems much more promising, until it just hangs on fail.t.  Is this
similar to what others see?

In the meantime, I'll grab a copy of sqsh and see what I get.

Thanks for the help,
