I was unable to boot it at all. It crashed directly after displaying

The hardware probably makes no difference. I'm using a Buffalo HD-HLAN
now, because my QNAP TS-101 is currently running as a server.

Right. I fear this might be another problem caused by switching the
toolchain to GCC V4.5.3. The source hadn't changed since then.
It also explains the strange crashes I had in altboot during the last
weeks, while trying to implement the Iomega Storcenter disk-loader. :|

Hmm... so the recent altboot can boot from disk? On HD-HLAN it doesn't.
Can you also get into interactive mode?
I have an altboot.bin from the 8th of August, which still works. But a
binary based on the source from the 12th of August fails. This was the
time were GCC 4.5.3 was introduced...
