You could test it by not using the repeater and see if that changes

console -d vga -d pc_kbd -d pc_mouse /dev/vcs

When the console hangs, you can connect to the process with gdb and
get the backtraces of all threads to see what they are doing.  That
only works if the Hurd was compiled with debudding symbols.  I am not
sure if one can modify the debian package to do just that?
