Here's some followup information from my instance of the
same error. What can I do to fix this without reinstalling?

# ps -A | grep auth
root    5  - So    0:00.05      /hurd/auth

# showtrans /servers/password

Comparing the /hurd/* servers to a freshly unpacked archive (using
gnu-20020816) I can only conclude they are identical, so there must
be something else wrong.
