Yeah, I know. Many of them.

Did you cross check that your /usr/sbin/sshd binary has 
auth_may_setuid set, not e.g. /etc/init.d/ssh or /usr/bin/ssh?

RSBAC restrictions are additional to the Linux permissions. There are 
three ways to override the Linux permissions:

Per user / CAP module: Set a min_caps value to give this user Linux 
capabilities with rsbac_user_menu <user>

Per program / CAP module: Set a min_caps value to give this program 
Linux capabilities with rsbac_fd_menu <path>

Per target dir tree: Use linux2acl tool to convert Linux rights to an 
ACL script, apply this script, disable Linux rights checking for this 
dir with rsbac_fd_menu <dir> (needs an RSBAC kernel option) and then 
tweak the ACLs as required.
