Let me start by saying that iSQL works without issue.
My app is running on a 64 bit version of ubuntu using unixODBC 2.3.0
connecting to a proprietary db (Thoroughbred) using their 64bit driver which
I am 99.9% sure is based on sybase.

Using your two most recent versions 3.1.X when sending a select query I get
back random garbage on any null fields. I would assume this would happen in
any transaction but selects are where i have seen it happen and its 100%
reproducible. Using your older 3.0.4 version everything appears to work fine
and null strings come back just fine however my app will just randomly die
and a segfault for mxodbc is recorded in /var/log/messages.

I have a production ready app that my customer was expected to go live with
today but I had to push it do to the random crashes. This issue is costing
me money by the day. To be clear I don't think this is an mx.odbc issue i
think it has something to do with the fact that i am running on 64 bit but
was hoping that someone on this list had the same issue and has a work
around that doesn't involved having to deploy on a 32bit machine.
