allan mcrae on the arch-dev-public ML today:

Hi all,

The update to glibc-2.18 removes pt_chown which is a security risk. It
is not needed on an Arch system given we have /dev/pts.

However, some people appear to have /dev/pts in their /etc/fstab file,
which generates it with the wrong permissions. This will result in
errors like "grantpt failed: Operation not permitted".

To fix this, remove that line from your fstab file. systemd will take
care of generating /dev/pts with the right permissions.
