Unfortunately, no I don't have the patch yet either (I don't think...),
though I'm eagerly awaiting its appearance on the freetds CVS server.

It doesn't matter if you're using TDS 4.2, 4.6, or 5.0. As long as
you're not using TDS 7.0, text, char, and varchar columns all get

What I would do though is try the TDS 7.0 and see how it works for you.
Your mileage may vary. So do a `configure --with-tdsver=7.0
--enable-dbmfix` and see how it goes.
