I replied to my previous message when I noticed this errors seemed to be
specific to the 2010-09-15 tarball -- I didn't get the error when using
an older one.  I guess my reply is stuck in the moderation queue, though
(I may have sent it using my address), as I don't see it
on the list.

I used the line from that wiki page:

  sudo qemu-maemo-system-arm -M beagle -m 256 -sd ./beagle_sd.img -clock unix -serial stdio

I'm using the latest package, yes, but I'm on Lucid.  With the older
tarball I didn't get the error but it was spinning one of my processors
for hours and the last thing I saw in the console was some omap nand
thing.  I"ll give it another try and report a bug if it doesn't work.
