The latest Debian GNU/Hurd system should come up nicely when booted in multi
user mode (don't specify "-s" in Grub). It will mount it read only first,
and then e2fsck it (as controlled in /libexec/rc). Make sure that
/var/run/mtab exists but is empty.

As I said, your problem is a configuration problem only.
Sorry I can't be of more help, but theother problems are uncommon to me
(beside the memory leaks, and I can't help with those :)
