[sudo-users] path expansion

Yes it does.  I thought that maybe it had to do with the path but even after I added it to my path I get the same thing.  Strange thing is it doesn't seem to be entirely consistant.  I mistakenly typed a cat command and it showed '/bin/cat /etc/sudoers' as not being allowed (at least the error expanded the path if nothing else).

I verified this by

cd /usr/local/sbin
sudo -u root ./visudo

I'd be very surprised if this behavior was exhibited on a different OS (not HPUX IPF 11.23) but I can't check that at the moment.

That's definately unexpected behavior, if you cvan check whether
this happens with the release candidate that would be useful.
