[freetds] Long column names and PHP

Thanks for the tip. You are right that I was connecting using 4.2. I
couldn't find the version from the TDSDUMP. But I checked the output
from phpinfo() and it said 7.0, but I guess the freetds.conf file
overrides whatever PHP has selected. After I changed the version inside
freetds.conf to 8.0, everything worked perfectly. Funny thing is
phpinfo() still reports 7.0.

That would happen if you're connecting with TDS 4.2 instead of 7.0 or
 Check your TDSDUMP log or try selecting from a varchar wider than 255
characters.  If it's truncated, you're using TDS 4.2.
