WinDbg Litle Formatting Bug

Hi,

I think that I have found a little text formatting bug in WinDbg. I am using the *6.11.0001.402 X86* version and when I execute the *!running* extension I get the following output:

1: kd> !running

System Processors 3 (affinity mask)
Idle Processors 0

Prcbs Current Next
0 ffdff120 8885bdb0 …
1 f7727120 88e91db0 …

This output could deceive the person that the running threads are ffdff120 and f7727120, however these are not even threads. They are the PRCB’s addresses. The columns header are not aligned very well. I think that it should be like this:

Prcbs Current Next
0 ffdff120 8885bdb0 …
1 f7727120 88e91db0 …

If this is really bug it could generate some confusion for people that are starting to learn native debugging with DTW like myself.

Thanks for reporting this.
