I just rebooted my machine with the cvupped-and-compiled world
and kernel, I logged on and did the following:

(stephanb@enigma|ttyp4)~> w
w: /dev/null: Permission denied

Checking out /dev/null gave me this:
crw-------  1 root  wheel    2,   2 Mar 28 20:00 /dev/null

I had to chmod it to 666 again in order for me as non-root 
to do a 'w' ... my question. Why this behaviour ?

I've been running FreeBSD for years, but this puzzles me
