Blinky no blink, but can step debug?

LPC 1769 RevB, LPC Expresso v8.2.2 Build 650, Semihosted C


I have run the code below out to the 1769 using the attached programmer.  It worked once and then I could step into the code therafter, but the LED never lit again.  This example doesn't actually, blink, but should turn on the red LED.  I took the board to a friend, and he was able to get my blinky blinking using the LPC-Link2 programmer, so I bought one and it also is able to program the part and step into the code, but does not blink the light.  I tried to program the flash with mass erase and the ISPResetConnect.scp file which had no apparent effect on the problem.  I now have 4 boards with this issue, since I thought that I was damaging them until my friend's setup was able to revive them.  I also tried using the USB cable direct to the PC and to a different PC.  I am unable to find any references to this issue, since most of the reset type questions involve not being able to debug.  I have always been able to program and debug these parts.  Something is keeping the IO from working.

// Enter an infinite loop, just incrementing a counter
