Well, without seeing what your code is doing its hard to say, the driver
manager is only involved if you call W functions to a driver that
doesn't support them, or non W to a driver that only supports them. If
you are using Oracles gateway, I know there are some (IMHO) "broken"
versions that pass UTF-8 into the W functions, but that would fail with
any query. I suspect its passing UTF-8 into the ansi functions and
freetds needs to be lold how to convert that to SQL Server UTC-2. At
least thats what our (Easysoft's) driver does at that point.
