 Something is changing the permissions of the /dev directory to 0600.  I
 saw this twice over serial on a XO-1.75 with 12.1.0 os13.

 This obvious wrecks havoc on userspace programs when this occurs.

 I have looked at cron jobs, grepped olpc* scripts, etc. with chmod's
 looking for the culprit, but I have not easily spotted it.
