Interesting! Is there any way I can help debug/solve this?

As for running FreeBSD on the SheevaPlug: I think I will stick with 
Ubuntu for now, as I haven't been able to get FreeBSD to recognize the 
NAND storage nor the SDIO controller, and FreeBSD doesn't seem to have a 
  wear-leveling filesystem (or GEOM layer) anyway.

I think FreeBSD on the SheevaPlug right now only makes sense if you 
intend to boot from the network, and maybe use additional storage from a 
USB-attached hard disk.

Kind regards,
Maks Verver.
