I don't really know the root of the problems you are experiencing, but I 
have seen something similar when I first tried rawhide.

Do you have UNIX98 PTY support and devpts filesystem support enabled in
your kernel?  If so, do you have /dev/pts mounted properly?  My problems
went away when I added an entry for /dev/pts in /etc/fstab and did "mount
/dev/pts".  I think Documentation/devices.txt has some infos on it.
