There are other problems : for example it seems that the system 
changes the /dev/ttyXX or /dev/pts/XX ownership depending on who is being
logged  in.. it seems that several files in /dev will have to be symlinked 
to /run/dev and then proper devices being created ?

# find /dev -mtime -1

Symlinking /dev/xconsole to /run/xcolsole appears to work ; but maybe we
should use a ""standard"" (two quotes) "/run/dev" for "changing devices" ?

Is there a list of devices that are supposed to change (rights/ownership)
during time?

And should I fill a BTS for the /etc/init.d/sysklogd bogus with
read-only /dev problem anyway?
