[sudo-users] Sudo version 1.7.2

Does anyone have experience using the -i with this new version of sudo.
It seems the only way for me to source the users .profile is to have
/usr/bin/ksh in the /etc/sudoers file for the command.  I obviously do
not want to add /usr/bin/ksh among the commands to run as a particular
user because I could easily become that user by typing "sudo -u username
/usr/bin/ksh" and then run whatever I want.  I have noticed that when I
add /usr/bin/ksh to the sudoers file that what it effectively does is to
do an "su - username -c command" 


Thanks, Pat
