So, what's your version of GNU Mach ? And how much memory do you have
on your system ?
hurd is pretty current of debian:

GNU hurd-vm 0.8 GNU-Mach 1.7+git20161023-486/Hurd-0.8 i686-AT386 GNU

I did try checking top in a second terminal.
On opening, aptitude has 66mb RES 132MB virtual
after "g" it grows just a little more, I hit gh once again and It ramps up to 72Mb RES, 128 VIRT... and staus there, 9% of memory.
The virtual machine is configured with 768MB of RAM.

No network activity: there are no packages scheduled to download, the hang happens *after* the download. In case of a crash, I restart and there is nothing to download and it will hang again.
