Yes, this is a symptom of a more general problem: We have not talked about
boot and init process yet (the Linux way probably does not map one to one,
although I could port init and login).

Yeah, this is a file that should be created by the install routine. Note
that e2fsck wants it to do check at system startup.

Hey, it's a feature (no it isn't). I read some mail about this, a long time
ago. Please file a report to bug-hurd@gnu.org.

Does it also work the other way round, eg cat'ing directories? Probably.

It works here in single user mode. I have to test this more. Can you debug

This is a "feature", that means, a low priority bug. It will not be able to
list all fd/1 fd/2 etc (any time soon?), but it should list an empty
directory... mmh.

Wow. Strange that it doesn't crash :)
