Create a table that contains a tinyint and/or a bit:

create table TestTab(ID varchar(10), Verified bit, Slot tinyint)

If you return the bit or tinyint fields, you get garbage appended to the end.  This is the same on MS SQL Server 6.5 on NT as well as Sybase ASE 11.0.3 for Linux (The free unsupported one).  

You can work around it by converting the results to a varchar field, then you can read them normally.

So you can use:

SELECT ID, CONVERT(char(1), Verified) AS Verified, 
CONVERT(varchar(2), Slot) AS Slot FROM TestTab
