Yippee, I managed to add the patch from Samuel to the patches with quilt
and rebuilt emacs. Now it works in non-window mode, thank you Samuel! 
Has nobody tried emacs before in GNU/Hurd since this bug is still there?
I know that real programmers use vi, but anyway.

I assume that there will be no updates until the squeeze release, not
even an NMU for the Hurd fixing this problem!?

In case somebody is interested I can send the emacs23_23.2
+1-7.debian.tar.gz including the patch (unfortunately did not update the
version due to lack of a decent editor :) or the .deb files (not signed,
since I'm not a maintainer).

Does it help to file a bug report?
