Well it took a while but finally isolated this issue. It's a little
esoteric perhaps but for future reference BDI can be controlled with the
config file by disabling VECTOR CATCH
Similarly a Xilinx XMD JTAG debugger had the same problem. in that case it's
a matter of writing a PPC405 SPR DBCR0 to configure internal debug.

Yes, this happens on a lot of different targets. There's nothing we can do
about it - you'd have to talk to the kernel folks or the BDI supplier.
