This is absolutely news to me.  I'm pretty sure that you will find
that /dev/fd[012] exists on your system and that it was created using
'/' in make_dev calls...

More details on this bug are most welcome.

I'm working on the 16char limit problem as well, but I want to avoid
allocating memory in incovenient circumstances if at all possible.
