ls tries to open devices

I installed gnumach 1.2 (Hurd 0.2) in an Intel Pentium 100.

The native- install script was succesfuly executed.

The boot loader is GRUB, and it's parameters are:
        root (hd0,1)
        kernel /boot/gnumach.gz root=hd0s2
        module /boot/serverboot.gz

The boot process seems to be OK.

The problem:

When I try to list devices in /dev, hurd creates a process related to the 
device listed.

For example:

# ls /dev/ttyp1

now, if I run a "ps xa", one of the listed processes is something like:

root    198  - So       0:00.12 /hurd/term /dev/ttyp1 pty-slave /dev/ptyp1

if I list all the directory, I have lots of processes running, and the system 
becomes extremely slow (because I have only 24M RAM).

When I kill all of them, the system returns to it's normal state.
