Are you able to send me  work/rxvt-2.7.10/config.h  from the build?
I'm only on -current and can't reproduce this.
I ran MAKEDEV opty, fiddled with config.h to use those ptys but everything
ran OK.

:On -current/3.x this does not happen - I'm using ptyfs there and all ptys
:always are owned by root (even when someone is logged in).

Something funny is happening there.
