This list is perfectly suited to this kind of discussion. Sending a
problem report is also a good way to make sure your patch is not lost or
I'm the current maintainer of the expect port, and the issue of the pty
limit has been raised before (in private) -- and I have already added a
patch to the port to fix it.
I hadn't sent the patch upstream though; thanks for that!
Since you don't seem to already have the fixed port, I guess you
have probably got an old ports tree (from the last release?).
