[c-nsp] freezing ASR1002 when generating RSA keys

Has anyone experienced an issue where generating keys on an ASR1002 just
freezes the box? I am configuring it through the console port. The software
is the 15.1(3) xe-rommon stuff. Does cisco do anything weird with their
images like Junos does here ssh is available only on the domestic images?
I've generated theys keys a lot in the past past but have not seen this
yet, usually its instantanous. Have tried three times now with each time
needing a power cycle to get life into the box again. There nothing in the
logs to indicate what could be going wrong.

asr1002-r01(config)#crypto key generate rsa general-keys modulus 2048
The name for the keys will be: asr1002-r01

% The key modulus size is 2048 bits
% Generating 2048 bit RSA keys, keys will be non-exportable...Oct  8
