DBUG program hangs when erasing sector

Hi,
i downloaded the Freescale DBUG source code (v4a.1a.1b) and got it compiled using GNU compiler.
I then ran the program on my MCF5235 evaluation board. Everything runs properly until I
tried to execute the command line "set client 192.168.1.2" which hangs the board. I did
some tracing and found that it hangs in
amd_flash_sector_erase(int n)
{
   volatile AMD_FLASH_CELL status;
   
   pFlash[0x555] = AMD_FLASH_CMD_DATA(0xAA);
   pFlash[0x2AA] = AMD_FLASH_CMD_DATA(0x55);
   pFlash[0x555] = AMD_FLASH_CMD_DATA(0x80);
   pFlash[0x555] = AMD_FLASH_CMD_DATA(0xAA);
   pFlash[0x2AA] = AMD_FLASH_CMD_DATA(0x55);
   pFlash[SADDR(n)] = AMD_FLASH_CMD_DATA(0x30); <-- hangs at this line
   
   do
 {
       status = pFlash[SADDR(n)];
  
 }while ((status & AMD_FLASH_CMD_DATA(0x80)) != AMD_FLASH_CMD_DATA(0x80));
       
   /*
    * Place device in read mode
    */
   pFlash[0] = AMD_FLASH_CMD_DATA(0xAA);
   pFlash[0] = AMD_FLASH_CMD_DATA(0x55);
   pFlash[0] = AMD_FLASH_CMD_DATA(0xF0);
 
}

My linker file is:
/* vim:set ts=4 sw=4 et syn=c: */

Hope that I could get some advice. Thanks.
