  i'm trying to increase the default password timeout from 5 mins to 10 or 
more.  i have this entry in my sudoers file

Defaults passwd_timeout=15

but it does not work. that syntax looks good to me.  i have tried this on 
multiple machines, but it has never worked.  do i need something else???  
btw, this is sudo version 1.6.5p2 on various linux and solaris boxes.  
thanks for any help or suggestions!
