Good to know - calling sudo in sid, causes a bus error on Debian
sparc64-ports, it's based om a Sid setup.

root at deblnxsrv254:~# sudo
Bus error

root at deblnxsrv254:~# gdb /usr/bin/sudo
GNU gdb (GDB) 7.3-debian

This GDB was configured as "sparc64-linux-gnu".

Reading symbols from /usr/bin/sudo...done.

(gdb) r
Starting program: /usr/bin/sudo 

Program received signal SIGBUS, Bus error.
0xfffff801008e0420 in make_grlist_item 
(user=<optimized out>, gids=<optimized out>, ngids=1)
at /usr/src/sudo-1.8.2/plugins/sudoers/pwutil.c:552
552                 grlist->groups[ngroups++] = cp;

Why is sudoers.so going true it knies? And do you need some more info? Or do you know exactly what goes on and how we can solve the issue?

The Debian bug post, with more information, is available here ...
