Thanks for the help here.

Its the #includedir Im having a problem with, not #include.

These are my recent results:

#include /etc/sudoers.d/niall.conf
## #includedir /etc/sudoers.d

Syntax parsed OK
Sudo works

# include /etc/sudoers.d/niall.conf
#includedir /etc/sudoers.d 

# visudo -c -f /etc/sudoers
parse error in /etc/sudoers near line 10 (includedir is line 11)

# include /etc/sudoers.d/niall.conf
#includedir "/etc/sudoers.d"

Syntax parsed OK
Sudo FAILS to read niall.conf

Looks like a bug.  For a workaround try:

#include "/etc/sudoers.d/repo.conf"
