If this is related to going back from 13.1 to 12.3
as you mentioned in the other mail, then it's clear:
su(1) has been moved from coreutils to util-linux,
so going back may have broken things. You are probably
the first one to go that direction ...

I'd either login on the console as root, or "ssh root@localhost"
and re-install both packages. Good luck.

If that is not possible, maybe try boot the 12.3 full dvd, and choose
"upgrade". It will replace many things to their originals, so you have
to reapply the patches and updates later...

Another step is this:

rpm -q -a --queryformat "%{INSTALLTIME}\t%{INSTALLTIME:day} \
%{BUILDTIME:day} %-30{NAME}\t%15{VERSION}-%-7{RELEASE}\t%{arch} \
| sort | cut --fields="2-" | tee rpmlist \
| egrep -v "openSUSE.12\.3" | less -S

to find all packages that do not contains 12.3 in their "names".
