If I understood you correctly, you are experiencing the same problem as I was a
few weeks ago. I think the problem is that the NAND configuration (that is, the
configuration for the menu items in the NAND menu) is stored on a seperate
partition from the uboot, so reflashing won't change it (actually, this is
probably a good thing, because that way you don't have to rebuild your custom
boot menu everytime you update your uboot).
I fixed that by asking someone in the irc-channel to kindly send me a backup of
his u-boot_env partition and flashing it on my freerunner. And then, you could
also just boot into nand and reconstruct the boot menu manually (see
http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/U-boot#Bootloader_prompt for details)
