Probems opening /dev/tty when running from gmenu2x

running 'ash' or 'bash' from gmenu2x, I cannot start Emacs.  It

 emacs: Could not open file: /dev/tty

Everything is fine, however, if I switch to a console using
Ctrl+Alt+F2.  Also fbterm works correctly.

So is gmenu2x somehow messing with the console?

This is with the 2010-12-14 firmware image.
