Just to be pedantic.
Not subdirectories. 'mount --bind' binds the directory tree. What /dev
picked up was submounts, which is why you issued 'mount --rbind' as a
workaround. (The mount manpage I think has something about devpts.)
I wonder if 'mount -t devpts devpts /dev/pts' is a better workaround
for your problem, though.
