Ping needs sudo ??

Something changed on my EeePC 901 (in Ubuntu Eee) over the past week or two as, suddenly, ping gave a permissions error when run without sudo.
Hadn't come across this before but the problem is explained here
The solution is just to run

chmod 4755

and you can find an explanation for what this does somewhere in this wikipedia page
