Comment(by x):

 I repartitioned the card, and now booting from it works.
 I find it very hard to believe that it has anything to do with the
 partitioning-tool used (and i didn't use gparted in the first place).
 Obviously it's also not the case that booting works if the kernel happens
 to reside in the first 3mb (i can boot from the 2nd partition now, which
 is behind the first 2gb partition).
 So the mmcinit reporting 3mb as capacity in the end seems to be just a
 cosmetic problem. Though there are still cases left where booting doesn't
 work (plus, i had spurious problems mounting the rootfs by a kernel that
 was loaded from the very same fs, which might be a related problem)
