Xilisf error with Spartan-6 LX16 Evaluation Kit

Has anyone gotten the Xilinx In-system and Serial Flash Library (2.03.a) working with this board?  XIsf_Initialize returns an error, as do attempts to read from the flash device.  SPI initialization seems to work fine. Impact seems to write to it with no problems.  I tried two different boards with identical results.

 

I've used this library with other boards with no serious difficulties, mainly using the example bootloader provided by Avnet for the LX9 Microboard, which I believe has the same serial flash device.  Is there a trick?

 

I asked this question in a different thread but no responses -- I'm hoping a fresh thread might get some additional attention.
