Debugging EJBs local variables not resolved

JBoss 6 M5, JBoss Developer Studio 3.0 GA (or Eclipse Java EE IDE for Web Developers. Build id: 20100218-1602 same symptoms)

I am trying to debug an EJB application.

I start the server with
set JAVA_OPTS=-Xdebug -Xrunjdwp:transport=dt_socket,address=8787,server=y,suspend=n %JAVA_OPTS%
(I have also tried suspend=y)

I have a Debug configuration :

Connection Type: Standard (Socket Attach)
Host: localhost
Port 8787
When I set breakpoints in EJBs and run this configuration, the application stops at the breakpoint

BUT
in EJBs no local variables are displayed, only instance variables and the method arguments (named arg1 ... argn).
When I try to add a local variable to the Expressions it cannot be resolved.

Any ideas how this problem could be solved would be welcome.
