D'oh! That's my fault.

Line 142 of src/checksum.cc; change the obvious 0x7FFFFF to 0x800000.

Incidentally, you probably don't want to be using pblq to download the entire 
flash. The mechanism it uses to read the flash is extremely cludgy and 
horribly slow (we're talking 66 to 100 bytes per second).

You're far better off using pblq to save the first 64kB of flash, downloading 
Matt's shell into it, and then using that to get the rest --- it's much 
faster. You might even by able to download it into RAM and run it there ---
