Well, telnet and ssh are remote so they're subject to netdde hangs. The
hurd and machs console use the VGA interface (or something similar). You
can identify the hurd console by switching to virtual terminals with
ALT-FX [1-6]. You can disable it by editing /etc/default/hurd-console.
When the hurd console is disabled, the system remains on the default
mach console, with a single terminal only.
