SUDO - secure path problem

I'm having trouble getting the secure_path parameter for SUDO working. My sudoers file looks like

Cmnd_Alias   PKGRM = /usr/sbin/pkgrm
Defaults    secure_path=/usr/sbin

If a sudo user's PATH is normally just /usr/bin, and the user types:

sudo pkgrm

that should work because the path given by secure_path should be used. I can't get it to work, is there a bug, problem with syntax? Any suggestions?


Ps. Using latest version 1.6.3p5 on Solaris 2.6.
