/dev/pts/xx operation not permitted


I currently run slack9.1 with kernel 2.6.4

when I am root, and that I want to change ID on my own user account I type
su - 'myname'

it works but says :
/dev/pts/xx operation not permitted

where xx is the xterm where I run 'su'

I have not the same pb when I change from 'myname' to root (su -)

is it normal ? or is there a need to correct something ?

thanks for your advices
