So to make this a little more elaborate:
- I managed to reproduce this with an unpatched glibc inside and outside the
  container just like @Tyler outlined.
- I managed to reproduce this with a patched glibc inside the container and an
  unpatched glibc outside the container.
- I managed to reproduce this with a patched glibc inside and outside the
  container.

So a patched glibc which returns ENODEV in case a symlink like /proc/self/fd/0
points to a pts device that lives in another namespace does not improve the
situation. The problem that @Tyler outlined still exists.
