Wiki-like text discussion box: 



On UNIXy system, ``kill -HUP 1'' is sometimes being used to inform the `init'
process that `/etc/inittab' should be re-read.  Doing so on a Hurd system will
get you an endlessly looping output like this on the console:

Resource lost
/libexec/runsystem: line 116: /bin/sh: (ipc/send) invalid port right
Resource lost
/libexec/runsystem: /libexec/rc: /bin/bash: bad interpreter: (ipc/send)
invalid port right

The system is still usable, but very slowly.  Rebooting helps...
