It should also work if you (setq *compile-definitions* nil)
before executing the definition of the method that you wish
to step. (trace (<...> :step t) does this temporarily, if
it can find the source for the thing your stepping (this is
why *save-definitions* needed to be true while executing the
method in Karsten Poeck's example).
