I've been checking that, yep. But, I just recently got 
_XSERVTransSocketUNIXAccept: accept() failed dropped in there a few times.

Good to go cap'n. Translator set up, and a quick cat of /dev/mouse and 
slap on the mouse shows it works.

I'm using the, er...K5 CD's from Nov-2003.
uname -a : GNU hurd 0.3 GNUmach-1.2/Hurd-0.3 i386-AT385 GNU

X -version : X: warning; nice () of process failed: Permission denied 
(not fatal, so i just ignore it for now) - it drops to -1, and version the is,
XFree86 Version (Debian 4.3.0-0pre1v3.1 20031019062655 rmh@debian.org) 

All apt-get'ted off the CD. I'll throw this into the mix too. Can't mount 
my floppy :) `settrans -acp /floppy /hurd/ext2fs /dev/fd0' yeilds "ext2fs: 
/dev/fd0: panic: get_hypermetadata: disk size (737280 bytes) too small; 
superblock says we need 1474560"\n"settrans: /hurd/ext2fs: Translator 
died". This is probably just something I did, I'll probably have it sorted 
by the time you respond.
