[freetds] FreeTDS problems with converting SQL BigInt

So, I enabled logging for my application. This is what it shows me for the column that is being corrupted.

token.c:526:processing result tokens.  marker is  81(TDS7_RESULT)
token.c:1472:processing TDS7 result. set current_results to tds->res_info
read.c:179:tds_get_string: reading 20 from wire to give 10 to client.
        colname = MaxQueueID (10 bytes)
        type = 108 (numeric)
        server's type = 108 (numeric)
        column_varint_size = 1
        column_size = 17 (17 on server)


Does this mean that the TDS stream that is being read by freetds is advertizing the column as numeric?

Is there any way to have tdslog print out the value of the column that it is reading from the socket?

As Frediano mentioned, the server sends the output parameter after any
ROW packets.  FreeTDS makes the data available to the application as
they arrive from the server.

What does src/odbc/unittests/genparams show on your machine regarding
the BIGINT type?

Cf. TDSDUMP in the user guide.
