SNTP Lockup

If a static IP is set to a non-existent gateway, every time I call NASntpTimeInstall the unit locks up (works fine with DHCP or an existent gateway). I tried spawning a separate thread, and still no luck, it still locks up the entire system.

Also, during that lockup period, powering off the module will corrupt the NVRam settings.

Anybody seen anything like this? Thoughts?
