In the past, I experienced a hang at boot when bringing up the network
under Virtual Box. I used the default card provided by VB instead of
selecting a card for which Hurd had a driver.
After a dirty reboot (Machine -> Reset), I would lose /dev devices,
I assumed it was due to ext2 and lack of journaling. But I never did
track down the actual problem.
The fix (for me) was to reinstall Hurd using a network card for which
Hurd had a driver.
