Before I knock a hole in the wall from beating my head against it, I'd like to ask you guys if you can see a reason why I cannot erase or program a 9S08GT8A. I've been successful before with a GT16A and 32A but for some reason this thing won't fly.

Before my code piece, some info:
Bus clock = 1.1Mhz (and verified)
FCDIV = 5, meaning my flash clock is 1.1MHz/6, or 183KHz.
FPROT = $FF (no block protection)
Vdd = 3.3v
Part is the 42 pin SDIP (yeah, the weird one that won't fit into any socket in the world that cost less than $45)

The erase code is attached:
