[Python-Dev] 2.3.3 test_pty sometimes fails on Solaris

I'm installing 2.3.3 on a Solaris 8 system.  If I run "make test", it
reports that test_pty failed and gives this error:

test test_pty failed -- slave_fd is not a tty

but if I run "./python Lib/test/test_pty.py" or ./python Lib/test/regrtest
test_pty it seems the test succeeds.  It smells sort of like the bug report
at http://www.python.org/sf/864374.

Any suggestions where I should look for culprits?  I know zilch about ptys.
