I can reproduce this issue on a container (with separate rootfs) which
does not even have
pts, tty or networking set up. gettys in the container are commented
out, of course. This is on 2.6.34 with lxc 0.7.0
It also leaves me unable to switch ttys in the host. Shutting down the
container does not fix the problem, I have to kill X for it to go back
to normal.
