[sudo-users] glob usage in 1.6.9

As documented, if a user tries to execute ./command in a path allowed by a 
sudoers rule containing a wildcard, it won't match with the fnmatch() call,  
so fast_glob can't be enabled.

I wonder if a patch such as the attached would make sense, to allow fast_glob 
to be turned on at least for certain such cases, to avoid a potentially 
lengthy search that could trigger loads of autofs mounts and other unpleasant 

Uncompiled, untested, I'm just wondering if the approach is worth pursuing
