I have not experienced that, but I suspect that it is related to udev. Check 
that it is installed on your system (dpkg -l|grep udev). If so, try as an 
experiment to remove it, and then mknod your device, then reboot and see if 
it is there,

I removed udev on my system because I use software raid and udev kept 
"removing" /dev/md0 and not creating it in time to allow mdadm to start the 
software raid on boot up.

I am still assessing the situation. I have had to create /dev/psaux by hand 
(mknod) to run X, I have had to create /dev/hdi to install a 3rd ide 

So Let me know what happens.
