no, wrong patch.
correct fix commited to both relevant branches.

the bug was revealed by my last kpty patch (the part removing
openpty()); i introduced it when i made kpty a stand-alone class ... :}
hmm, possibly the kpty api is somewhat stupid (i think no-one actually
needs the slave fd in the parent process; the ioctls _should_ work just
as good on the master fd), but now it's somewhat late for changing it
and it does not seem too important anyway.


Hi! I'm a .signature virus! Copy me into your ~/.signature, please!
Chaos, panic, and disorder - my work here is done.
