Thanks for your advice. I tried making a smaller (4 GB) partition and boot from
that, but still no dice.
However, I found out that the older SHR unstable (circa August 2009) boots and
works just fine from the bigger sd card, so I think I can rule out a problem
with the bootloader?
Any other ideas? Maybe there were changes in the kernel for the new shr versions
which could cause this behaviour?
