sendmail and setgroups()


The current SendMail in unstable appears to be doing a
setgroups() call when it does not have superuser
privileges.  I am getting the following on a regular basis
from my lids kernel.

LIDS: sendmail (9 2 inode 32909) pid 19760 user (8/8) on
NULL tty: more CAP_SETGID violation: Try to
setgroups,logging disabled for 10 seconds

It only loggs this when setgroups() is called and the user
is not root.  Do you have any idea what this could be?
