If I could see a TDSDUMP log, I'd know at least what the Oracle server is
handing to FreeTDS.  

To enable logging with an ODBC-only setup like you're using, I think
you'll have to export TDSDUMP in the Oracle process space before starting
the server.  At least that would be the case if (as I suspect) the Oracle
server is loading the FreeTDS ODBC shared library.  

The alternative would be to enable logging in freetds.conf, and use an
ODBC-combined setup (the Servername option in odbc.ini).  

A couple of people have reported success using FreeTDS in the way you want
to, so it would seem it can work.  I myself have no experience with the
product.  I can help you only from the driver point of view.
