setusercontext(), the function that raises this error, logs more
verbose information via syslog. you may want to log in as root and
have a look at /var/log/authlog for more details.
if this fails to reveal anything, whilst as root (in single user mode,
i suppose) you may want to try running ktrace on su, and seeing what
fails last by examining the output with kdump.
