SUMMARY: NIS+ problem with user login ("...permissions too tight")

I had this problem, sudo was working, but not su.

A truss of su told me that su couldn't open /etc/shadow,
still I got NIS+ error :-/

/bin/su had lost the setuid bit.

a pkgchk -f  fixed my problem.

If the problem is related to missing setuid bits, a pkgchk will tell you
which files that have wrong permissions.  (-f just fix them without telling you)
