Unfortunately, all of that is correct. I wasn't aware of the gid 
restriction, but that's not the issue since I have the same problem if I 
take out that restriction. Essentially, whenever trying to use sudo -u 
it prompts me, even if I set it to:


Yes, I'm in wheel. No matter I try using -u prompts me in every case...
