restored a backup and can't su to root now

I restored my (B)LFS system from a backup (basically, booted from a cd, 
copied everything from the backup disk to the destination disk, mounted 
the /dev filesystem, and fixed grub), and everything's working just fine 
except for this annoying thing: if I log in as a common user, I can't su 
to root. Logging as root works, ad su'ing from root to another user also 
works. Any ideas?
