[ale] Cannot chown unowned files

I've got an odd situation. Some of my files have changed ownership to
an unknown user & group...
-rwxr-xr-x 1 122 114 39696 May 2 16:17 ls
-rwxr-xr-x 1 122 114 54152 May 2 15:54 netstat
-rwxr-xr-x 1 122 114 62920 May 2 12:39 ps
There is no user 122 or group 114 on my system. And I can't chown them
back, even as root.
host bin # chown root ls
chown: changing ownership of `ls': Operation not permitted
Anybody got any suggestions?
