[sudo-users] Error: sudo: no tty present and no askpass program specified

I'm running Fedora 10. Here is what uname -a says:
Linux localhost.localdomain 184.108.40.206-170.2.72.fc10.x86_64 #1 SMP Sun Jun 21 18:39:34 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I have a QT 4.5.1 program that I wrote that I was using QProcess to shell out and call a perl script using sudo. This worked for several months, but after installing some update (I don't know which update caused the problem.)...
Here is the command I am running:
perlProcess.start( "sudo", args, QIODevice::ReadWrite );
Here are the args:
args= ("/usr/local/bin/zmpkg.pl", "status")
Now when it runs I am getting this error: sudo: no tty present and no askpass program specified
When I first set this up I edited the sudo configuration file with visudo and commented out "Default requiretty". It is still commented out...
I can still execute the command in a terminal window, but for the life of me, I can't get this to work from my application.
Any and all ideas would be appreciated.
