If the admin removes read permission from /dev/tty, then we cannot read
from /dev/tty. I don't see how this could be a bug. rxvt-unicode does
not change the permissions, nor can it. You changed the permissions to
something broken; there's no way a program can work around that. I
tested recreating the device with makedev; it now creates it 666.

things change.
