Ah-ha ... well, that would explain what I am seeing!

To answer some more of Simon's questions:

Well, the _address_ is certainly the same; I checked that.  Although my
3.99.mumble kernel is a gzimg kernel that runs out of flash.

I forgot to mention that; a non-INSTALL kernel does work.  Under the same
circumstances as well; I load it in via tftp and do "go".

>Signal 10 is bus error in NetBSD -- I assume also in the RedBoot GDB stub?

Hrm.  So, if I were to connect to this via gdb, would it work?  I ask because
it's likely the RedBoot gdb stub and not NetBSD's, and I only have limited
experience using gdb to debug stuff remotely.

>I'm not sure what the difference is with the kernels built for flash 

When I looked at it, they were just compressed and had a gunzip stub so they
would fit into the flash.
