I didn't respond because I haven't seen the problem you described
before and you said you'd investigate, so I was hoping you'd find out
what's going on.

I can certainly help you investigate the boot problem.  In the
meantime, to get a running system, download the tar ball again,
extract it somewhere and copy the files from /boot over to your usb
stick. (In fact, simply copying /boot/uImage.bak to /boot/uImage might
work too but please keep a copy of /boot/uImage so we can inspect it.)

I don't know.  But if someone finds out, I'm happy to add instructions
to my web site.
