Okay, done with the investigation: utempter makes extensive use of both
ptsname & friends (as specified by POSIX.1, which we only implement in 5.0+)
and SUSv2's utmpx, which we don't implement at all. Someone really
knowledgeable with pty-stuff might still be able make a compatible workalike
(or hack bsd-specific utmp-supportcode directly into konsole), but not me...
