Updated today and I see the same.

But I don't think is the same, but there might be something strange.

With this "newer" NAND Uboot I'm not able to connect to it as an USB console. 
I used to connect to /dev/ttyACM0 with minicom/cutecom, but after upgrading 
it says always it cannot open the device or device not present or something 

I can see on /var/log/messages in my computer, that right after plugin the FR 
in NAND uboot it gets detected, but immediatly it says  "USB disconnect, 
address whatever."

I can connect to NOR uboot fine, and was able to connect to NAND uboot with my 
previous version, probably from arround 10-13/9/2008. On friday 19/9 I 
updated-uboot with the one in releases/om2008-udates and began noticing this 
behaviour. Sundays version still does the same.

I've not yet filled a bug for it, as I'm not completly shure where I should 
put it. I tried docs.openmoko.org but didn't find any bug in any state 
containing keyword uboot, and component uboot does not exist.
