Intellij Idea - pathetic debugging for Flex

Almost two months ago, my company switched to IntelliJ Idea from Flex Builder
for Flex development. I am very sorry to say that it sucks, when it comes to debugging.

Its stack trace for breakpoints is WRONG in 99% cases which makes
it very difficult to debug reliably.
