If a table on a MS SQL Server (verified on version 7.0) contains a float field, that float is always returned as 0.
This problem has been verified using any version of the freetds library from 0.53 to today's snapshot, and PHP 4.1.1, 4.2.2 and today's snapshot.
The problem is NOT in the freetds library, performing the queries from tsql or sqsh returns the correct values.

The problem does _NOT_ show when using the ct-library.

If you change the locale to english via setlocale(LC_NUMERIC, 'POSIX'); does it fix the problem?

Can it be done via env. variables? I'm on a production system, and I'm wary of hand-patching.

Yes it can be done via ENV variables, setlocale() is a PHP function which allows you to set locate related enviroment variables.

  export LANG

to your webserver start script should do the job

please verify in phpinfo() output that it is really used
