Locking Hurd

On a side note, my system keeps psuedo freezing while
doing an apg-get operations. All the terminals
stop working, including the console.. Numlock still
toggles the led on the keyboard, and I can still ICMP
ping the machine from my linux box.

Any new connections made to the telnet port accept the
connection, but no login prompt is issued....

Any ideas?
