We've been seeing this on darnassus several times: try to allocate a PTY
(log in via SSH, or start screen, etc.), and get a »No more PTYs«
message.  Now the same happend on flubber: I could log in via SSH, but
starting screen failed.  I did a »ls -l /dev/tty* /dev/pty*« (which will
start all translators due to »stat«ing the nodes) -- and then I was able
to start screen.  Strange?
I often had my pty's exhausted when accessing remotely. Often only after a couple of shells/logins. I never tried the "ls" trick on pty's. I will test that to see if my box suffers from the same problem.
