I'm unsure what you are doing at the lowest level, but I've seen weird
behavior like this before.  Have you tried resetting the board by
turning it off for at least a minute?  I've had bad kernels cause
corruption in memory that somehow keeps things bad until a power

I've more typically seen this in boot blocks where the SRAM in the
part I was working on persisted after reset.

It is a long shot...
