Problems with large swap partitions

I was willing to try building openjdk, which is a nightmare for memory consumption (see http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=519012). So i added a new 20GB disk with a hd2s1 partition of the maximum size for swap.

First, i don't know if Hurd can handle several swap partitions, so i deactivated the initial one, just to be sure my result is not biased.

At boot, or run manually, swapon result in a segfault. Samuel suggested to try 1.7GB, which is known to work, as used on buildds currently. It failed in the same way. I attached the rpctrace, but i don't know what to do now. Could someone help ?
