This tells me that I'm even more ignorant than Ross. (-:

I'm using the buildlib.bat too. I was able to invoke the MS VC++ 6.x
debugger when my program died, and I was able to step into the
pthreads code when I wanted to.
(the reason why the program died was entirely my fault, not the fault
of this excellent pthreads implementation)
