Nothing to correct here.  AVR Studio can only handle the historical
three sections (text, data, bss).  This is due to its design.

The solution would be to debug the bootloader and the actual
application separately, where the bootloader uses just plain .text.
Or give VMLAB a try, their design uses the resulting ROM image file
(hex file), and the COFF file only to obtain the symbols, so the
actual section name is irrelevant.
