[freetds] Problems with FreeTDS and Lotus Domino on SLES10SP1

we are trying to use unixODBC and FreeTDS 0.82 to read and write to 
MSSQL 2005 databases.
The connection works and we can read and write data to the database 
using LSX ODBC classes from LotusScript.
(Connection tested with dctest from Lotus Domino)

The first problem are datetime fields which were interpreted as 
"undefined" fields in the Lotus Domino agent.
The only way to write date and time to this datetime fields in the 
database is without the predefined LotusScript class "result.UpdateRow"
and with the normal sql UPDATE query.

The second problem are the german umlauts (ä,ö,ü). They were read as 
ASCII 127 and can not be interpreted.

Are there any known solutions or experiences?
More infos needed?
