Does Nios II economy core have no hardware breakpoints?

I have ran into an issue with nios 2 economy core. I am unable to debug the code when running from flash as the eclipse crashes in the startup code

_start () at HAL/src/crt0.S:304
304 movhi sp, %hi(__alt_stack_pointer)
Warning:
Cannot insert breakpoint 1.
Cannot access memory at address 0x80270

 

I am able to run the code and I can see the hello world message on the console. But I am unable to debug the code.

 

Is hardware breakpoints with flash only possible with Nios II fast core?

My guess is economy core doesnt support hardware breakpoints and hence we cannot debug the code execution.
