    SubjectRe: PTY feature? or bug?
       Date: 26 Apr 1996 18:11:20 GMT
    From: Raul Miller <>

    This is a bug in emacs if the current behavior has some reasonable
    use or is part of some standard. This is a bug in the kernel if
    there's no reason for the current behavior.

    The bug goes far beyond what Alexey was reporting. The bug is the fact
    that emacs leaves the pty owned by root, mode 666, instead of doing
    something (for example, a setuid helper) to allocate the pty and assure
    that it has the correct ownership and permissions.
