 Subject:  1.3b3 suddenly stopped booting on net4501

Hi list,

I flashed my Soekris net4501 from 1.231 to 1.3b3. Everything worked  
fine during and after several reboots. Suddenly the box didn't come up  
anymore. I connected to the serial console and got the following:

These funny characters appear only after the kernel of m0n0wall has  
been booted.
Any ideas how to revive my 4501?
