boot0sio waits a minute

Does anyone know why boot0sio would wait about 1 minute before proceeding?
If this is a known issue I can't find anything about it. I know there is a bug with boot0cfg not changing the partition to boot to. Don't know if this is related.
FreeBSD 8.2RC2 i386. Boot blocks were compiled with speed 115200. Installed via nanobsd to a compact flash card on an Habey 6620II Z530, but there doesn't seem to be anything wrong other than with boot0sio, or something with how nanobsd installs boot0sio (NOT boot0- that works). But I have checked what nanobsd is doing, that seems ruled out, seems fine. BIOS seems ruled out. Seems like boot0sio.
Everything works in all manner of configurations, just this very annoying long "hang" before boot0sio runs. Again, boot0 does not do this.
I'm not talking about the pause after it displays the boot partition selection options. It's before anything happens. I get a blinking underscore in the upper left hand corner of my screen (and nothing on the serial port) for a very long minute before the system boots. Doesn't matter if I have serial attached or not, etc..
