Debugger won't Step Into

I am having trouble with WSAD stepping into certain classes. The classes in question are in a jar which is part of our infrastructure. Ordinarily when you step into a jar class you get the source not available window with the option to attach the source. On these classes it just steps over. The step into works fine on other jars. Does anyone have any ideas on this?

Try checking to see if the jar file is already associated with [non-existant] source code. If so, delete it and you should get the prompt again. (you may have to restart the server or wsad) You can check this in the build properties for the project.
Also, what version of WSAD are you using?
