OK - this works, but when I try to login:

login root 
or login mcv21
it asks for a password, and then says 
login: checking password: operation not supported

which means the only way I can reboot is the microsoft[1] button :(

the /etc/passwd in hurd is non-shadow, so I don't see what the problem is?
