    I just did a clean install, and load my backup from Time Machine..

    When I tried to repair permission, I got lots of errors..
    It says it is being repaired.. but the next time I run, the problem retains..
    And there is also one SUID problem that has not been repaired..

    You needn't worry about it.

    Apple's Knowledge Base article says
    You can usually ignore any "ACL found but not expected..." message. These messages can occur if you change permissions on a file or directory. These messages are accurate but are generally not a cause for concern.​

    have you by any chance run it again??

    bet the only one left is the SUID

    thats there because of the up date that you did after installing SL just delete the file if it bothers you

    well thats odd

    because I had virtually the same list as you but a reboot and rerun of repair disk permissions cleared the lot out except for the SUID one

    Not really..
    But I did installed an application called iSofa..
    http://www.justisofa.com/
    Which let me access my mbp's settings with my iPhone when they are in the same network..

    Probably it causes the problem? Since in that application's website, it says that it uses apache2... And I saw there is an error with apache2 in my list...

    Hey OP, the same exact thing happened to me.

    First, I upgraded to SL from Leopard and only had the one unrepairable SUID.
    I decided I wanted to do a clean install of Snow Leopard. After the clean install, I backed up from Time Machine, and I ended up with the exact same list as you after I repaired permissions in disk utility.

    I rebooted my computer, did another repair, and found the exact same list.

    Honestly, my computer is super fast now after the clean install. I don't know why or how, but I'm not gonna worry about these repair permission files if it means my computer performs better.

    Let me know if you end up finding a solution though
