chroots need a proper setup anyways. Before I enter my chroots, I use
bind mounts to do so. Mounting a new devpts filesystem inside a chroot
in my case makes screen fail to work, as it can't attach to the terminal
my chroot is running in. As rc.sysinit isn't executed for chroots, I
don't see a problem here.
