Someone may be trying to execute the 'su' command from an HTML form and
the error is being logged to the error_log.  I have a PHP script that
displays man pages and if a user enters a page that doesn't exist the 
error is dumped to the error log file:

No manual entry for <some non-existent manpage>

There's an entry in my blog at http://jez.hancock-family.com/ about
exploiting CGI scripts which might be of interest.
