ColdFire 5484 R/W line will not return high

I have posted this in the CodeWarrior forum as well.
I am having a difficulty with the R/W on the ColdFire 5484. When I write to a location that falls within one of the address spaces of a FlexBus chip select, the write line goes low and never returns high. From all I can tell the the FBCTL registers and PAR_FBCTL registers are set appropriately. For starters, I have used the M5485 stationary that comes with CodeWarrior and inserted the line:
*(uint16 *)0xFE000000 = 0x5555;
after the declaration of ch in main.c. The settings of the relevant registers are:
PAR_FBCTL = 0x5577
CSAR0 = 0xFE00
CSMR0 = 0x001F0001
CSCR0 = 0x00001980
When I first begin debugging M5485 UART SRAM, PPDSDR_FBCTL has the value 0xFD indicating that the R/W line is high. Once I execute the line that writes to 0xFE000000, PPDSDR_FBCTL has the value 0xF8, indicating the R/W line is low and retains that value indefinitely. I have tried the same operation on a board we have developed and have gotten the same result, and I have also used equipment to confirm the status of the R/W line. Is there something that I have overlooked in configuring the chip? FYI, I am using CodeWarrior 5.7.1844 with the P&E Parallel BDM. We use the M548xEVB Lite Board with a MCF5484 and use a MCF5484 on our in house developed board as well. 
Thanks in advance,
