i do only have /dev/ptmx and /dev/pts/, no pty* (char-major-2) and no 
char-major-3 tty*.
i do not have any "write", "w" problems. so i think it's safe to remove
all of those files (above). but do _not_ delete ptmx and the pts directory.
as mentioned, you need to have pts support compiled into the kernel and
the pts filesystem must be mounted.
