These are the command lines I'm using. Its only a simple program to flash an

mips-tx39-elf-gcc -O2  -DCOSMP27 -DCIO_27 -D__BigEndian -DB115Kext -O2 -g -W
all -fno-exceptions -DUSE_HELP -DNO_MALLOC  -c led.c -o led.o

mips-tx39-elf-ld -o led.out -lg -lstdc++ -L/lib -T/link/tx39xxb.ld -Map crt0_only.o led.o

I've tried using gdb -nw, but I have a very hard time trying to connect to
the target. Here's a trace:-

Nothing will happen, until I press the NMI button, then on rare occaisions I
can connect. I don't have this problem when using Insight, but I do still
have to press the NMI once before I can connect to the board.
