Another problem with long strings in Sudo

Redirecting input like this is fine as long as you have read
permission on the file.  Remember, your shell does all file
redirection and pipes, not sudo.

Some versions of makemap had a problem whereby they wouldn't
create a new file, I suppose that could be it.  This doesn't
really sound like a sudo problem.
