strange su error

Hi everyone,

Has anyone else had a problem with su from unstable? When trying to su
to root, after entering the correct password, I get the following: "su:
cannot set groups: Operation not permitted"

The call to initgroups is failing and after a little investigation, so
would setgid and setuid. All are failing with EPERM.

shellutils: 1.16-6.4
libc6: 2.1.1-9
kernel: 2.2.10

Any ideas? Thanks,

? Michael Gratton - mike@vee.net
