Description

when xterm is closed, it prints:

Cannot chmod /dev/ttyp3 to 666 currently 620: Operation not permitted
Cannot chmod /dev/ptyp3 to 666 currently 600: Operation not permitted

I don't know how to tell it to stop chowning it, but I think this would
be the correct solution.

Not a bug, other then in xterm itself. It is trying to chmod
the pty after it has closed it. Once the pty is closed xterm
no longer has any rights to it.

DEVFS does all the chmod/chown work anyway, so it is harmless.
