Is this because, the original class was not compiled with debug info?
The original class being java.lang.Thread. Yes, I think this is probably the case. You can easily check this by dumping the version of Thread.class in your boot classpath:
javap -c -private -verbose java.lang.Thread
My Sun jdk 1.6.0_14 has line numbers for all methods but no local variable tables.
