--device-master-port=${device-port}             \
--exec-server-task=${exec-task}                 \
-T typed ${root} $(task-create) $(task-resume)
module /lib/ /hurd/exec $(exec-task=task-create)

The boot looks promising at first, but hangs with the line ed:
/lib/ /hurd/exec.


I ran into the same problem a couple of weeks ago. It appeared that the problem was in grub's menu.lst. In fact, there were a space just after one of the '\' in the first module block. Try to put this block in a single line, so as to avoid '\'.
