Can't run from Current Directory

I'm upgrading from CU Sudo 1.5.3 to version 1.6.7p5, however I'm having
trouble with the new version not running a command if it is in my current
directory. For example, I want to give some groups permissions to restart
Samba with the command "/etc/rc2.d/S99samba". If I cd to /etc/rc2.d and
then run "S99samba" then I get a "Command Not Allowed" error message.
However, if I run ./S99samba or use the full path /etc/rc2.d/S99samba, then
sudo allows me to run the command as I would expect. The current directory
(.) is the last item in my path and the sudo documentation indicates that
this should work. My current version does run as I want. I would prefer
not to compile with the --with-secure-path. Any suggestions??
