 I just ran into a nasty situation (on gentoo):

 After an update from openrc-0.10.5 to 0.11.0 /dev/pts was not mounted. The
 reasons are unknown and not subject here.

 The problem: I could not downgrade using 'cave resolve' because /dev/pts
 was missing. So, cave resolve is non functional then.

 Luckily, 'emerge' was still functional on my system.

 I propagate this issue because this is quite a vulnerable thing.
