You're correct in the cause of the problem. PB 6 was released with
SQLAnywhere 5.0 and didn't support ASA 6.0 either at first. A coding
change was made to support ASA 6, but now that there's ASA 7 the same
thing would need to be done. Given the product timelines, there may
be reluctance in engineering to backpatch such an old version of PB,
but your only recourse in any event is to open an issue with support
and pursue it through those angles. Be prepared to provide a business
case, specifically why you can't upgrade to PB 7 (which by the way
would have the same problem today!), so at the very least the outcome
of your issue would be a change to PB 7 desktop.
