/dev/tty is mode 660 rather than 666 as shown below:

[root at epic] ~ [504]$ ls -l /dev/tty
crw-rw----  1 root root 5, 0 Dec 31  1969 /dev/tty

Could the difference in permissions be a BSD vs. Linux issue?  I've never
changed any permissions in /dev so they were determined by the Gentoo
maintainers.  When I changed the permissions to 666 the problem was resolved,
however I'm curious if they were originally set to 660 for a good reason.

Also, a Google search using some keywords from the previous comment reveals that
this bug appears to be a duplicate of bug 471 for which a patch has been
submitted.  For now I've changed permissions on /dev/tty which has resolved the
issue -- thanks to everyone for your assistance.
