This happened with GNU 0.2, but the Debian packages should not have this

Old versions didn't tag the disk as clean, but newer Hurd packages should do
this. I do not see this. In fact, the "sync" should be unnecessary, too.

One question: Are you really using the Hurd reboot command, or the Linux
reboot command? You don't have installed some sysvinit for Hurd, have you?
