well, it does not look like many of the console drivers in the
./drivers directory have watchdog trigger points (in 1.1.6):

es-o: ~/projects/uboot-bcm/uboot/drivers 33 > grep -l WATCH *
es-o: ~/projects/uboot-bcm/uboot/drivers 34 >

so, it seems like a system wide issue - I guess people don't worry
about watchdog too much when u-boot is in monitor mode...
