ColdFire 5213 w/o MULTILINK pod

My application code runs fine with the P&E Micro Multilink pod but will not run without the pod attached after POR, or at least it appears that way since it won't communicate serially.  This is true of both the eval board and our own board.  However, on the eval board, if you hit the reset button then the code will execute.   One engineer suggested from previous experience that it was an initialization code issue but couldn't locate the exact problem.  Documentation isn't clear on conditions on POR vs. hardware reset.
Is anyone familiar with this issue that could describe steps necessary at initialization to ensure processor runs without the pod?
