in that case, it would be better to dynamically allocate the string (and 
to create it by default at 5 bytes for the %04x value)
furthermore, you need to change the comment in debugger.h in 
THREADNAME_INFO structure about the name's length, as it seems VC7 
removed the restriction to 8 characters that existed in VC6
