I pretty sure that's it.../dev/pts.  You'll still have the /dev/pty* devices,
/dev/pts/* should just be a 'standard' interface ontop of them (for now).

Is that 'su' or 'su -' or logged in as root?  or suid root on the script? 
(suid root on the script probably won't work).

I'm not sure what would be different, but if you haven't tried it as 'su -'
to root, try it that way...
