Debug problem on JDK 1.3.1 (IDEA: 1113)

Hi,

In my current project we use BroadVision server running on JDK 1.3.1. I use remote debugging.

The problem is that very often, when the execution reaches my breakpoint the current execution line is not highlighted. To know where my execution point is (class/method:line number) I have to look at the "Frame" tab in debug window.
That's not too bad. The real problem is that when I hit "Step Over" it doesn't go to the next instruction but to the next breakpoint or to "The application is running" when there is no more breakpoint.

I didn't figure out in which conditions this happens - sometimes this works correctly (hightlighed execution point + "Step over" working as expected) but the majority of time I have the problems described above.

Currently I'm running build 1113 but this happened in the previous builds as well. Since when - don't remember :( I've never had this issue with IDEA 3.0.x.

Is it a known issue? Any workarounds (apart from moving to JDK 1.4.2)?

Thanks,

There was a bug, sometimes when there was no source code for the executed code - only compiled class IDEA didn't show the execution point in editor. Fixed in 1116.

I think the stepping problem may arise from stepping filters. Try to turn off Settings->Debugger->"Do not step into classes"

Did what you proposed and at the beginning it worked fine. Now I'm back to the situation with Step Over not working anymore.

Is there anything I can do to increase IDEA debug level to provide you with more diagnostic information?
