On UNIXy system, ``kill -HUP 1'' is sometimes being used to inform the `init' process that `/etc/inittab' should be re-read. Doing so on a Hurd system will get you an endlessly looping output like this on the console:

#v+
Resource lost
/libexec/runsystem: line 116: /bin/sh: (ipc/send) invalid port right
Resource lost
/libexec/runsystem: /libexec/rc: /bin/bash: bad interpreter: (ipc/send) invalid port right
[...]
#v-

The system is still usable, but very slowly. Rebooting helps...
