Hi folks,
	we have recently installed sudo (version below), and have started to
configure based on our needs. One of the things we want to do is to modify
the passwd_timeout from its default of 5 minutes. Reading the manual pages,
this appears possible by updating the visudo file:
	defaults        passwd_timeout=10

However when I save the update, sudo rejects the update:

"/usr/shared/etc/stmp" 39 lines, 1735 characters
>>> sudoers file: syntax error, line 7 <<<
What now? ?
Options are:
  (e)dit sudoers file again
  e(x)it without saving changes to sudoers file
  (Q)uit and save changes to sudoers file (DANGER!)

What now?

The syntax look ok - does anypnw have any ideas?



% sudo -V
CU Sudo version 1.5.9p3
