I need to step through some code in WorkbenchPage found in the org.eclipse.ui.workbench.source_3.4.0.I20080606-1300.jar file.  I go to Preferences > Plug-in Development > Source Code Locations and then click on Add: I find the jar file, but it's grayed out and I can't select it.  I try to attach the source code in other places and get the message: "The JAR of the class file belongs to container 'Plug-in Dependencies' which does not allow modifications to source attachments on its entries".  I was able to attach source code to debug with earlier versions of Eclipse so I know this used to work.
