Thanks for all this feedback I already received.

I didn't know about those clock issues of VirtualBox, and I already assumed that I should much rather use QEMU for testing Hurd (which I will do as soon as I find time for doing so).

Having checked this now: The computer I'm primary using (a Lenovo G710 notebook) has a SATA DVD reader indeed... I will try installing Debian Hurd on another computer which still has an IDE DVD/CD reader.

Most notably, VirtualBox has clock issues, which are very annoying for
practical usage.
