Strange behavior I'm getting since I last did a mergemaster and

crw------- 1 root wheel 2, 2 Jan 11 10:00 /dev/null
My /dev/null is crw-rw-rw-.
Don't know how it happened, but it sure seems like a simple permission
chmod 666 /dev/null should fix it (I would think).
$ file /dev/null
/dev/null: character special (2/2)
I am running 4.6.2-RELEASE #5. What did I miss here? I'm beginning
to wonder if this may be causing some of my other problems with fvwm
menu/keystroke xterm execution.
Obviously, it will cause problems any time someone other than root tries
to write to /dev/null
