I've found out a stunning thing (for me) today: I checked out a fresh
Hurd from CVS in the following way:

 $ cvs -z3 -d:pserver:address@hidden:/sources/hurd co hurd

Then I created build/ , went there, configured and ran make
pfinet. The executable file pfinet I got as a result behaves in the
*same* way as the modified pfinet + devnode! That is, things work a
little bit slowly, and wget stalls having downloaded the same 2,576
bytes :-(

I wonder whether this can be caused by the fact that I'm using the CVS
repository... I tried to find Hurd git repository, but I only ran over
some links on Savannah which pointed to a repository having only a
README file. Could somebody point out where I could find the correct
git repository?

Also, I didn't apply Debian patches, but I'm not sure whether they
could be the cause... I didn't apply them because, apparently,
something is different in the main Hurd branch and Zheng's branch,
because exactly the series of patches which worked in Zheng's branch
failed in the source tree I got by means of the command mentioned
above.
