Subject: hooking fastcgi to Sybase

Dear Fastcgi developers:

   I have been trying to hook up a simple fastcgi program running on the
Apache server to Sybase.  I have getten some wrapper classes that simplify
the interface to Sybase's dbserver.  I tried putting these classes into one
of the simple example programs, echo and echo2 (tried it both ways, with
the fcgi_stdio and without).  I get a similar result whenever I send it any
transactions - nothing comes back, and mod_fastcgi throws the following

mod_fastcgi.c:870: failed assertion `bufPtr->size > 0'

Does anybody know what this exception means ?  Also, is there anything that
fastcgi does, perhaps in its use of pipes to handle the communication
between apache and the fastcgi program - anything that might conflict with
the Sybase dbserver interface ?
