Trouble running fte from the Official Debian 1.3.1


I have installed the fte text editor package from my Cheap*Bytes Official
Debian 1.3.1 CD-ROM.  I can run the text-mode (vfte) version of this
program just well, but only as root!  If I try to run vfte as a normal
user, I get the following:

	open: Permission denied
	failed to open /dev/vcsa*

Is there a small permission problem that might have been fixed since
Debian 1.3.1 was released?  I really don't want to make vfte setuid
(heavens, someone can just happily modify my /etc/passwd as will).
