Well, it means that you might want to look at your system
limits. The manpage for setresuid says:

       EAGAIN uid  does  not  match  the current UID and this call would bring
              that user ID over its NPROC rlimit.

Essentially this means that your system allows only a
limited amount of processes for group 1179. Can you lift
that limit to a much higher value, if not unlimited?
