I got numerous answers stating that its not setuid, nor is it worth exploiting 
since you already have a shell...

I didn't post the message to the mailing list stating otherwise, all I wrote 
that it is probably not a distro related issue (by showing that debian is 
vulnerable to these problems as well), and that in fact both these files are 
NOT setuid, allowing no gaining of elevated privileges.

That is all ... as the subject says... "some small bugs"
