OK, moving dfu-util into /user/bin fixed this. I now have no trouble
with dfu-util.

I used screen, and this seemed to solve this problem. I can get access
to the Neo.

I have now flashed rootfs twice. The process seems to work, but on boot
I stop at Net: registered protocol family 1 fork failed for JFFS2
garbage collect thread: 513
VFS: Mounted root (jffs2 filesystem). Freeing init memory: 108K

I cannot turn the Neo off. It will stop if I take the battery out :)

Of course, I don't know what I should be seeing.
