On Solaris 2.6 using the sybase ct-lib from sybase 11.5.1, datetime
values fetched from the database look like "Oct 20 1998 4:22PM".
On linux with the ct-lib recently released by sybase, they
look like "20/10/98".  Here is a patch to explicitly set the format
to the former.  It works with the two configurations I mentioned.  Alternatively, perhaps a new function could be added to set the date format.

That's all,

squinky browser interface instead of using e-mail)

Since this was my bug, I saw fit to fix it in the suggested manner :-)
