Open a command prompt in the support_files folder where adb is located.
Get into the shell by typing: "adb shell"
This will pop-up a prompt on your phone to allow Superuser access - just click Okay.
I have a D2G and I had the exact same problem.
[Contents removed for brevity]
After this just exit out of everything and run the 1-click root again. It should work now.

Like others on this thread, I have D2G that was rooted with z4root. I allowed the OTA upgrade without un-rooting. It came back up but I am unable to re-root using Pete's Motorola Root Tools. The app finds the phone, runs the exploit, then attempts to reboot the phone, but never succeeds. The phone powers off and then comes back up to the bootloader screen. I unplug it and restart, plug it back in and attempt the steps listed in this thread:
but I get the message that says '/system/xbin/su: not found'
I know this is a bit of an old thread but im going to fourth this problem.... same exact thing where the droid 3 one click root (now V 1.8) goes through everything but fails at the final step and throws an error about not being able to add superuser and busybox. Though when i go to the shell in the command prompt it says /system/xbin/su: not found.... i have 2.3.4 and recently just sbf'ed to fresh to that from a previous failed rom attempt (was rooted prior to that too)
not sure what to do to get my droid 2 rooted again...
|droid 2, gingerbread, one click root, ota, re-root|
