I remember looking in the /dev directory and finding /dev/ptya0 ..... /dev/ptyz9 or
something.  I had a whole slew of devices that started with the name "pty", but no
/dev/ptys directory.  I'm not sure about a /dev/pts directory.

I meant to say that running it as root didn't make any difference.  I can run an expect
script as root; but I have this problem w/ ptys whether I am root or as myself.
