Log Message:
	If passwd_tries is less than 1, check_user() will always return
	false (since the user didn't authenticate).  The normal reason for
	this is an authentication error but in this case no authentication
	was tries so no warning message has been displayed to the user.  If
	the user wasn't given a chance to authenticate, set inform_user to
	true when calling log_denial() from sudoers_policy_main().

	An alternate approach would be for check_user() to return true
	in this case but seems more confusing.
