C8051F120 Sililabs Demo problem

I am having trouble getting the Sililabs demo up and running. It is similar to other problems I have seen posted here but I have not seen a solution yet. I have cut down the demo to a couple tasks and here is what happens: I have the same problem. Here is the sequence: Main() runs and calls vTaskStartScheduler() From there all goes well and control is passed to the first task: vErrorChecks() which starts to execute. At this point interrupts are enabled but the clock hasn’t reached the first tick yet. Execution proceeds to calling: vTaskDelay() which executes down to the bottom "force reschedule" loop which calls: taskYIELD() At this point interrupts are disabled and control is never returned to original task and the timer ISR is not run since interrupts are disabled. Any help would be appreciated. Brad
