Apologies, I was unclear. My personal env is minimal to the point of not
reproducing the problem. I used my environment only for checking the
DBGC output (code and data size) in pxe_start_nbp(). In my env, the
above-referenced WDSNBP.COM binary tries to contact the WDS server, and
then cleanly gives up. I don't see any looping.

I've sent out some requests internally, for more information.

Thank you!
