Doesn't help from the point of view of seeing which threads in GDB 
match which debug output statements. On Linux this is easy as 
pthread_t is a uint printed by gdb.

How about getting gdb to print the pthread_t pointer address instead? 
I don't care what the number is, so long as I can compare the thread 
listing in gdb to the debug output and it makes sense!
