su: cannot set groups


Hi.
I am using Fedora 15.
I am having a problem with the su command.
When i try to use SU it gives me the following error :
Code:
$ su
Password: 
su: cannot set groups: Operation not permitted
Also when i change my directory to /bin and run the su file, using
Code:
./su
Then it works perfectly.
