GBS PDP debugger: Altering temp on first entry into method gets GbsRtErrArgOutOfRange

On first entry into a server method such as:

  someMethod
    | a b |
    a := 5.
    b := 6.

the step point highlighted initially is the first line, the method name itself.  At this point, the temporary inspector pane contains the field names 'a' and 'b'. If you try to select one of these fields, enter a value into the inspector text pane, and accept that value, an error is reported:

  GbsRtErrArgOutOfRange - The following argument is too
  large or out of range: 1

After the first step in this method, however, assignment of temporaries from the inspector will succeed.

Workaround

Step at least once in the method before assigning temporaries in the temp inspector pane.
