This sounds like the software you are using is coded to very old Unix
standards.  The old /dev/pty[qrst]? devices files haven't been around
for a while.  The Unix98 standard introduced a new and better way for
programs to allocate pseudo master/slave terminate devices.

Read: man pts

This likely isn't a udev thing.  In fact it's not really specific to
just Linux, except that Linux finally has dropped support for the old
deprecated interfaces.  Many other non-Linux Unices have also adopted
the new way as well.

Do you have source to the application?
