It's a little unclear exactly what you tried on whom, so I cannot with certainty say that "what you did, didn't work because..." - since I'm not 100% sure about what you did. I do think of one thing though: Very often, creatures that are immune to a specific spell effect, are not immune to the same effect from a weapon. Like Power Word: Stun not working but Kuo-Toa bolts works like a charm. Some creatures are immune to fire magic but can be hurt by fire arrows (physical dmg and fire dmg). Cernd is in my party at the moment (he is, I'm not kidding) and when checking his resistances while shapechanged to greater werewolf he's got "Fire: 70" and "Magic Fire: 50". Some creatures are immune to spells from specific spell schools; beholders may (or may not, just speculating here) be immune to conjuration/summoning, since "Power Word: Stun" and "Symbol: Stun" are from this school both. Kuo-Toa bolts are not from this school though
Beholders don't get stunned, everything else does. Simple enough?
I have tried PW: Stun, Kuo-toa bolts and similar stuff against them, but it does not work. The combat log says Beholder- Stunned. But the creatures still moves around and fires spells at me.
Not even close, it wasn't even made by Bethesda for god's sake!
BG certainly does have a lot of bugs, but mods are usually responsible for most bugs I've encountered. Not sure what may have caused this particular bug, but my immediate suspicion is the G3 Fixpack.
Hehe, aye! Can only second that, try playing Oblivion or Morrowind. xD
It could be, it could not be. I suppose only way to test it is to uninstall the Fixpack when I encounter a Beholder group and see if that solves it. Worth a shot, thank you - though the fixpack fixes so many things I cannot imagine playing without it.

I also found this tid bit of information in the read me file. Maybe it may prove useful to you:
Nah, only the Fixpack, I'm something of a purist; I try to make do without mods for fear of situations just such as this.
I've followed the installation instructions, so that can't be it.
In all honesty, it's been some time since I moved onto the ToB portion of the game, and as such, I haven't run into any Beholders (yet), and I hope I wont, either. Outside of stuns, I can think of very few foolproof ways of beating them, they are by far what I consider the most annoying creatures in BG2. My tactic nowadays is Greater Malison followed by Glitterdust, so thank the gods for Lazarus Librarius (Only found 1 Glitterdust scroll in whole of SoA...)!
