As far as I can tell it was a bad gumstix (bad RAM?, bad NAND?).

I tried another SD card, I tried copying the jffs into the NAND.
Everything failed.

In fact, the Gumstix with the stock os would reboot randomly every 30 minutes or so.

I tried another Gumstix board and BAM! Workage!

Have you tried it a few times yet and are getting the same results? It took
me a few tries to get the card done correctly I was not getting errors like
that but having other issues during boot and noticed I was not doing the o
option in the beginning and after making sure I did that on the next try
solved my issues and I could get a good boot from the sd card.
