I managed a partial workaround, but there are more disappearing local

The partial workaround is to

But now it's getting worse:

ck is a checkpoint routine that writes its argument to the message box and
a log:

*on* ck stuff

   *--   answer stuff*

   *--   breakpoint*

   *put* stuff

   *put* stuff & cr after fld "log" of stack "ckwatch"

*end* ck

   *set* the hilitedLine of pChFld to 1

pChFld has lost its value by the second line of this snippet!
