hmmm.  It sounds like you should contribute to the hurd website!
There's a webpage on it on the wiki or you could look up my contributing

why don't you try getting the latest debian-hurd image available via

Again this should be fixed on the website.  You can do it!  Send your
patches to the bug-hurd mailing list.
