That's annoyingly inconsistent.  Maybe just patch CDBI::Sybase::set_up_table() 
to strip off the owner part before using it with the sp functions?

sub set_up_table
     my ( $class, $table ) = @_;
     my $dbh = $class->db_Main();


     my($sp_safe_table) = (split m{\.\.}, $table)[-1];

     # find the primary key and column names.
     my $sth = $dbh->prepare("sp_columns $sp_safe_table");
