No idea. :-)

The code doing this is very similar to konsole code. In theory, if konsole 
works so should kdevelop. But yours is not the first report that this doesn't 
work :(

Does the debugger work if you select "Enable separate terminal for 
application i/o" in the debugger options?

Are the /dev/pty links to real "devices", or?
What priv is the devs,  "crw-rw----   1 root     tty",  or?

Why doesn't it use ptmx / pts? Do these exist on unixware? What priv are 

When you say "hang", do you mean that you have to kill kdevelop - or just the 
debugger part? (ie does the stop button get kdevelop going again?)

Does konsole complain, if you run konsole from konsole?

Can you send me a copy of Unixware?

What is the meaning of life? Is there life after kdevelop? When is it my turn 
to be abducted by aliens? :-)
