Installing Hurd: dselect causes panic

I'm installing the Hurd (J2 iso set) for the first
time and everything was going smoothly until I wanted
to start installing packages with "dselect".  When I
select "cdrom" as the install media, I get a message

/dev/fd5: line222: 59 Segmentation fault  mount >$tp.m

...and dselect recovers rather gracefully and allows
me to try again.  If I select "cdrom" a few more
times, I can get a message like...

panic: zalloc: zone ipc ports exhausted


panic: zalloc: zone threads exhausted

...and then my machine gets rebooted.  It seems fairly
consistant and repeatable (I've done it 4 times so
far), but it can happen the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th time I
try to select the cdrom.  I'll include my machine
configuration below.  Oh, and I don't seem to get any
core files from the segfault.

Hope this is of use to someone,
