That is unfortunately a known bug.  You can add them instead to the  
"startup flags" field in the "Startup" preferences pane.  I use a  
custom preferences file for debugging:

Remove the '-debug' and drop it into ~/Library/Preferences to use

As we enjoy great advantages from inventions of others, we should be  
glad of an opportunity to serve others by any invention of ours; and  
this we should do freely and generously.         - Benjamin Franklin
