i had the same problem on some of the machines here until i removed
secure-su (970616-1). in my case it was even worse, /sbin, /usr/sbin
where not even in the path and the default shell was tcsh instead of
bash. i think this is a bug in that particular package, but i couldn't
be bothered to investigate further.
