Eclipse debug JSPs

I did not find an answer to this by searching through the ranch.
I want to debug JSPs using the remote debug facility.
I am running Eclipse 3.2.2 with Web Standard Tools - Web Core Version: 1.5.3
and externaly a Tomcat 5.0.

If I am debugging a JSP it works fine, but when the JSPs' file endings are not equal *.jsp eclipse will not step into it at all. I use *.jspd files and renaming them will actually work. Since it would be a mess to rename all dependencies I don't want to do so.
I also set the preference that *.jspd files are associated with a JSP-Editor (the same settings as for *.jsp files)

Does anyone have a clou?
Thanks in advance,
I agree. Here's the link:
