[sudo-users] Problem with sudo version 1.6.8p9 on Sun Solaris 10 and the NOEXEC option.

It does not make sense to use NOEXEC in conjunction with su since
the first thing su has to do is execute a shell.  If you want to
be able to run a root shell via sudo you probably do not want to

Note that when it comes to editors, using sudoedit is generally
safer than vi w/ NOEXEC.
