cyg_thread_delay() does nothing with hardware. It just waits until the
correct number of timer ticks have gone off and then brings sleeping
process back to running state.

Does the system continue to run even though JTAG has stopped? 

Im just wondering if JTAG stops working with the system crashes?  It
could be your stack is too small, which sometimes causes crashes in

What test programs are you using? All the standard tests should work
without problems, so i would use them for the moment until you get a
stable system.
