That's because you are using devfs. Disable devfs and you should
be back to the olde behavior.

1. Wrong permissions for /dev/pts/0 and /dev/pts/1

After resoring a msysbk I can't open terminals on a 43P.
Telnet works for all users, but when trying to open a aixterm or something else
I get the message in errorlog that when running dtexec it has wrong permissions
 for /dev/pts/0 or /dev/pts/1... This does not occur for the root user.

What do I have to change, and why does it occur after restoring the backup?

Thanks and greetings,
