Operation not permitted for su

I have a user:group named ruby:lang. In /etc/group is an entry:

lang:x:10015:

and in /etc/passwd is an entry:

ruby:x:10046:10015:ruby-1.6.7:/usr/src/pkgusr/ruby:/bin/bash

When I issue the command:

su - ruby

I get the message:

setgid: Operation not permitted

Can anyone tell me what this message is telling me?  Thanks ahead.
