Su and ping broken


After installing AccelX and then spending 3 hours getting Xfree to work again
I`ve run into some very irksome bother.

1. ping is broken. Error;

$ ping news.u-net.com
ping: socket: Operation not permitted

Permission bother?

2. Su is even more broken. Error;

$ su root
su: cannot set groups: Operation not permitted

Even more permission bother.

It seems these two things are related and no doubt more packages will
have the same trouble at some point.

Any clues?
