Acknowledged, I just considered it "data loss" due to another
application which relies on correct results in order to correctly save
some data, but I get your point.
However, getting wrong results could theoretically, depending on the
application, cause real data loss when doing delete queries using a
previous bad result as input. But I admit that's a bit far fetched. :)
I was also thinking that packaging of both modules as php5-sybase and
php5-mssql, maybe with some warning notification during installation
about possible issues with MSSQL, could be a good temporary workaround.
The long term solution is to migrate away from MSSQL but our mission
critical applications would most likely take years to migrate, test and
