Did you recently change your kernel?  rxvt/gnome-terminal require you to
have the "pts" file system mounted.  It's part of devfs in 2.4, but NOT
in 2.6.  Run "mount" and you should see output like this:

devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)

or something about devfs if you're using devfs with 2.4.  If it's not
mounted, mount it.

I believe this was the issue. Not sure why kernel 2.4.18 quit working but I was setting up kernel 2.6.2
and did use compile PTS filesystem.  Once compiled, things work again.
