inconsistency between base and sysvinit packages!

I tried to send this to debian-bugs, but it hasn't been delivered for
2 days, so I'm posting it here as well.

[headers trimmed]

The newer base packages create /dev/tty* with permission rw-rw----.
This causes an error when you try to open an xterm/rxvt window. They
quit with "couldn't open a pseudo-terminal" msg. I don't know whose
fault it is.

However, the newest sysvinit has this command in the boot script:

chmod 666 /dev/tty[pqrs]*

So there seems to be a disagreement between the maintainers, no?

PS: please Cc: me, I don't get debian-bugs.
