In cases like this, we need to think about upgrade issues to.

An ordinary user who upgrades Debian packages should get their system
automatically to fix such bugs, and in this case, that requires extra
work.  I think the right thing to do is to have an upgrade thingie in
the Debian script that checks to make sure all the right ptys are
there and makes the missing ones if they are not.
