Sudo version 1.6.4 patchlevel 2 is now available (ftp sites listed
at the end).

This patch fixes the following problems in sudo 1.6.4p1:

 o Some special characters were not being escaped properly (e..g '\,'
   and '\:') in command line arguments and would cause a syntax error.
 o "sudo -l" would not work if the always_set_home option was set.

 o Added a configure option to disable use of POSIX saved IDs for
   operating systems where these are broken.

 o The SHELL environment variable was preserved from the user's environment
   instead of being reset based on the passwd database even when the
   "env_reset" option was set.
