Most of us get this, it seems to be harmless. We don't know what it is, and
how to get rid of it. There is some vague suggestion that extended
partitions are involved.

http://www.debian.org/ports/hurd/extra-files is the "official source"

But note that this is currently out of date. I must update it, and produce a
new tar file. I always managed it yesterday, but I hadn't enough time. I
will try to do this in the next week, but I am currently very busy.

OTOH, it will not be a good idea to do another CD with the old tar file, as
updating is troublesome, I think.

I don't know how your schedule is, but if it is okay that the tar file pops
up somewhen next week, than I will take care that it really happens (the tar
file, that is).
