Thanks for your reply. I am keeping this on the list and cc-ing you.
I have just upgraded unstable again (Friday 7th October) and the problem
persists. During the upgrade I noticed that the package 'eject' made the
same complaint, even though I was already running as root (unknown items
'QUOTAS_ENAB', 'NOLOGIN_STR', 'ENV_HZ', 'PASS_MAX_LEN', 'CHFN_AUTH'
Perhaps these errors are not directly caused by su? Could they be items
expected in the kernel? I am running kernel 2.6.8-2-386. I see that
2.6.12 is available in unstable. Which kernel are you running?
