Description
IDE truncate extension of target file to 3 characters.

Build Tool passes '-TXlongext' to dcc32 correctly.
But, -TX option of dcc32 does not work.

'Project1.lon' is generated intead of 'Project1.longext'.

As a result, IDE fails to launch the process. IDE can not start/debug it.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create new project.
2. Go to Project - Options - Application.
3. Set "Target file extension" to "longext".
4. Build project.
5. Extension will be "lon" not "longext".
6. As a result, IDE fails to launch the process. IDE can not start/debug it.
