I had the same problem. IIRC the problem is in rc. In this startup file 
the /var/run directory is deleted. i just added those ckdir and chmod lines to 
my rc to fix the problem, but that is not the real fix.

IIRC this only happens after compiling the Hurd from CVS, that overwrites the 
rc file. You can have a look at the rc supplied with debain to check if it has 
the same problem and if it doesn't have the problem you might check the 
differences if you are interested.
