Issue with etch images

It looks like there seems to be a fairly consistent problem on our virtual machines running debian etch. Jeremy noticed it on cluster, then I noticed the same issue on time and docs. The symptom: /dev/null and /dev/false aren’t
accessible to non-root users and not having udev installed. The fix: installing udev. I’m not exactly sure what the problem is, but it certainly seems to cause various programs (e.g. bash) to throw a “few” errors about not being able to write to /dev/null.
