Not a bug as such but aterm, being veteran code at this point, still uses a very old fashioned method to find and create the PTYs used by the application running in the Terminal (I.e. bash). Since around Glibc 2.5 we have had much improved terminal (TTY/PTY) support including proper openpty() support: aterm should be updated to use the correct POSIX interface instead of doing everything "manually".
