Maybe it cannot lookup the name of the syslog server in DNS?  (Maybe
DNS is slow?) or Maybe syslogd is not running or maybe you are using
LDAP and LDAP is running slow?

As root, try doing 'strace sudo su -' on linux.  Or if you are on
Solaris, try 'truss sudo su -'.  You will then see where sudo is
