>From me (repeating myself from comment #3):

Although users are not in the games group on Fedora this is still a problem,
this hole allows the following scenario:
- find a sgid game which is exploitable to get games gid rights
- use the games gid rights to drop a crafted file which will
  exploit nethack when opened by nethack.
- once another users runs nethack and opens the crafted file
  unwanted things get done with the rights of the other user.

So although low priority this needs fixing never the less.
