I use 2009.03 without problems, but I don't use jffs2 (atleast not in

Strange, it seems like that particular problem should have been fixed
by b5b004ad8a0ac6f98bd5708ec8b2 back in December, which is not in
2009.01, but IS in 2009.03.

So what you are seing, must be something else. Try bringing it up on
the u-boot list.

I would prefer to fix the problems in 2009.03 instead of letting
people use the old 2008.10 release, as the new releases have a lot of
bug fixes / new features.
