I made more tests and Variants are not related to the problem.

Then next simple application also has problems with stepping:
program project1;

{$mode objfpc}{$H+}

  SysUtils, Classes;
  List: TList;
  // you need to step into 2 times to be in the TList constructor. In 
the constructor you will visit first and last lines 2 times
  List := TList.Create;
