It's been a while since I've actually run DOCBoot (I've been working on 
other stuff), so I just built and installed it on my device from the 
latest CVS as a sanity check.  I get the same hard lockup as you do.

I'll let you know when I've found the problem.  Needless to say, I'm a 
bit embarassed to have checked in code this broken and let it sit that 
way in the repository for several months :(
