Again, after testing with PHP5 (out of todays CVS), and todays
freetds-current (0.61.dev.20030626) and looking a little bit into PHP
Sybase handling code, I see the following when selecting an empty

* ct_results is called, it gives restype 4047 (TDS_CMD_SUCCEED)
  fetching of any data except for
  ct_res_info(sybase_ptr->cmd, CS_ROW_COUNT, &row_count, ...)
  therefore does not take place. A CS_ROW_RESULT would be necessary even
  if it is an empty resultset.

* because PHP5 doesn't currently (and so in the past) support multiple
  resultsets, it breaks the whole loop and enters the next one which
  just expects an CS_END_DATA. In case of any other type, ct_cancel()
  will be called:
  ct_cancel(NULL, sybase_ptr->cmd, CS_CANCEL_CURRENT)

* this happens three times, each time the restype of the result was 4040

Something has changed in the handling of an empty resultset, so in case
of an empty resultset a CS_CMD_SUCCESS, and when receiving 1+ rows
CS_ROW_RESULT is returned.

Btw: this was a PHP script...
