Ok, thread IDs are now logged with DBG2 like this (see [1]):

  "[LIB] created thread <num> [<tid>]"

Where <num> is the human-readable thread number and <tid> is either the
result of gettid() or, if not available, pthread_self().  Logging the
latter is not 100% portable, but most implementations seem to typedef
pthread_t as pointer or an integer so casting this to u_long should be
fine (we can add more variants later if required).
