Well that shouldn't happen.  I've not seen that before.  However, I'm
not sure which snapshot is on the web.  A couple things come to mind as

-1- You need to set dip switches correctly.

-2- Some code was added for another program which created a path where
udelay was called before the timer was setup properly.  If you are
unlucky this can lock you up.  If you remove its usage in sys_info.c in
the board identification path it may fix your issue.  This is fixed in
later images.

Next week perhaps I can send you a binary which is known to be good.
