Oops...  It doesn't commit suicide when at 0x04000; it is doing more 
unpacking.  I am now tracing it printing "LinuxBIOS", trying to see where it 
*does* jump off in to never-never land, eventually tripping bochs out by 
going over my memory size.

Yes, I figured out why it was giving me that error -- the BIOS eventually 
jumped in to zeroed RAM and just kept going.  The crash always occured at the 
16M mark, where is what I have my RAM size set to. :-)
