Don't be too hard on yourself ... I think this example rather demonstrates the 
dangers of a class design that does unsafe implicit type conversions. Is 
CString a class with an implicit conversion to char *?  If yes, that is where 
the real problem lies.

(I assume that char * is what LPCTSTR is supposed to be? - I am no longer up 
to speed with respect to Microsoft's weird naming convention)
