[sudo-users] sudoedit permissions problem

su dudes,

I have this rule in my sudoers file:
mruser localhost=sudoedit /etc/printcap

I run this command:
sudo -e /etc/printcap

and vim puts this error at the bottom of the screen:
"/var/tmp/printcap.zpr6YQgR" [Permission Denied]

I am on osx tiger with latest patches.

localhost:~ pottmi$ sudo -V
Sudo version 1.6.8p9
localhost:~ pottmi$

This is the first time I am trying the sudoedit command so I suspect I am
just doing something stupid, but I am stumped.

Please help.
