By the way, bootlogd does not work on Hurd:

	bootlogd: cannot deduce real console device

What is the name of tty0 on hurd?

Okay. Let us only apply #851427 change to non-Hurd systems. Or you
know how to fix this issue on hurd side? If yes, I would definitely
welcome it -- less special cases in bin:initscripts is good thing.

Is it related to #851427? Sorry, I do not understand, what is wrong
        Note, that I send and fetch email in batch, once every 24 hours.
