I think the correct value can be obtained from sysusage. I can check and tell you the exact query if just sysusage doesn't help.
I am sure this must also be reported correctly on the MDA tables.

There was an ASE bug CR 607448 open on this, but it was closed as unreproducible.  

If you can still reproduce it, could you turn on traceflag 7415, run it again, and post the output?

dbcc traceon(3604,7415)
go
SELECT LCT_ADMIN("logsegment_freepages",12)
go


Have you recently run DUMP TRAN WITH NO_LOG on this database?

You might try again after running dbcc tablealloc(syslogs) in that database.

You may fix syslogs table first and re-run your command, fixing syslogs table must in "single user mode"
1. kill all process in the target db
2.use master,sp_dboption 'db_name','single user',true
3.use db, checkpoint
4.SELECT LCT_ADMIN("logsegment_freepages",12)

Hope this may help:)

you can check segmap 4 from sysusages for your dbid to figure out the total size of the transaction log and then LCT_ADMIN('logsegment_freepages', dbid ) to get the space used in number of pages.

Just out of curiousity is there a reason sp_spaceused can't give you what you need?
