Debian GNU/Hurd takes forever to shut down

I recently discovered GNU Hurd and I am really intrigued by the project - a big thank-you to everyone who has been keeping this project going!

This mail is to report a minor issue that I faced. I tried out the Debian GNU/Hurd disk image - that is listed on your website - on QEMU/KVM, and I noticed that it takes forever to shut down.

I believe I am using the latest version of the said disk image (debian-hurd-20220824.img). The command I used to start the VM is:

kvm -m 1G -drive cache=writeback,file=debian-hurd-20220824.img,format=raw -cpu host

The last few log messages after entering

shutdown now

are as follows:

INIT: Switching to runlevel: 1
INIT: No inittab.d directory found
INIT: Sending processes configured via /etc/inittab the TERM signal
Using makefile-style concurrent boot in runlevel 1.
Stopping enhanced syslogd: rsyslogd.
Asking all remaining processes to terminate...

This is not much of an issue since I can always just force-quit the VM, nevertheless I'd like to avoid doing that ...

During boot time I get a message:

/dev/hd0s2 was not cleanly unmounted, check forced.

which is probably a result of force-quitting the VM. Most of the times, it runs an fsck and continues. However sometimes, it reboots again from this point, and one odd time it prompted me to run the fsck manually - I haven't been able to reproduce this very well. Though I can confirm that the prolonged shutdown happens always, even on a freshly downloaded, unused image.

A few notes about the host machine:

OS: Ubuntu 20.04
CPU: Intel x86_64, 4 cores
QEMU version: 4.2.1

I hope this is useful.
