[sudo-users] #includedir gives parse errors

Hrm. I just noticed in the Changelog that includedir ignores files with
dots in them. It even looks like it's in the manual. I find that counter
intuitive, but there it is...

I do, however, notice that if I run "visudo -c -f ..." it leaves behind
an empty sudoers file in the included directory, which makes future
calls die with parse errors.

I suspect that sudo should be a bit more resilient to empty directories
and empty files.
