I am trying to use unixODBC and freetds for Oracle Generic Connectivity so 
that I
can create database links to MS SQL Server in Oracle 10g database.

I can run the unixodbc command isql -v <MS DB Name> <user name> <password>
to connect to the MS SQL Server and run the sql query succssfully select * 
from scProblem.
But the same query select * from "scProblem"@msticket doesn't work by 
using the database link msticket of the MS SQL server.
Oracle support verified that the configuration of the db link is fine. I 
can run the following queries successfully:
1) select * from dual at msticket;
2) select * from all_catalog at msticket;
Oracle support told me the reason that query select * from 
"scProblem"@msticket doesn't work is  that known bugs in freetds.
The bugs are:
1)  "describe table scProblem" doesn't work in freetd

2) In SQLNumResultCol function, freetds may return something similar to: 

Count = ffbed858 -> 0

instead of returning the real number of rows.

when I run the query select * from "scProblem"@msticket.

Could someone verify that? If so, are there any patches for them?

Thank a lot in advanced.
