For the time being, I added "tds_do_until_done()" and substituted it for
tds_process_simple_query() at the tail end of _bcp_exec_in().  freebcp now
loads the table it was failing to load, as it had done with bcp.c revision

My fix probably leaves TDS 5.0 broken, because that branch of the code
relies on tds_process_simple_query().  I left it that way in case you're
intending to fix/replace tds_process_simple_query() yourself.  Let me know
which way you want to go.  

The problem, as you can see by comparing the two functions, is that
tds_process_simple_query() wasn't setting tds->rows_affected.  I think
that's because it doesn't insist on seeing a TDS_DONE_TOKEN before it
returns.  That is, it returns too early, resulting in an incomplete TDS
conversation, and the server never commits the row(s).  

Perhaps tds_process_simple_query() should be called

Bill, Marc, please try tonight's snapshot and tell me how you fare.
