Ah, I guess that's it (although if it were, setting it would not be that
much of strange code (undocumented structure, flag, exception - setting the
name in the TIB directly would be easier...)
I just tried VC6's thread window, and it did not show the thread name, it
does not even have a column for it. And the article you mention says
something about the menu item "Debug > Windows >...", I don't have a submenu
"Windows" in "Debug" menu! Do you?
