[sudo-users] allow / deny su

If this is a direct cut and past from sudoers, you misspelled chmod (/bin/chomd)...

Hi all,

i've a more or less curious problem here.
This is my sudoers:

Cmnd_Alias    CHMOD = /bin/chomd

Defaults targetpw
%users ALL=(ALL) ALL

root    ALL=(ALL) ALL

user           ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL,CHMOD

When I remove the "ALL" from user, the user has to enter a password,
when I add the "ALL", the does not have to enter a password.
All I want is to enable passwordless chmod for this user.
Any idea why this happens?
