Debugging console program with long name

 Debugging console program with long name

If I put this standard piece of code in a project with a long name (more
than 8 letters) then it can not be debugged. De{*filter*} ignores the
breakpoint that I put at "printf..." line. There is a red dot at the
begining of the line but the program don't stop at that point.
If the size of the project name is less or equal 8 then it works fine.

#include <stdio.h>

void main()
        printf("Hello, world!");



I have VC++ 4.0 and VJ++installed on my computer with Windows NT 4.0.  I
also have problems debugging Java programs as well.
