The dynamically created Java code doesn't provide GDB with the necessary symbol information for debugging. As some of the Java code is created in the boot image, it is possible to find the location of some Java methods and to break upon them. To build with debug symbols, set rvm.debug-symbols to trueyou'll need to set the appropriate property as described in Building the RVM.
