[sudo-users] Anyone running sudo on AIX Virtus I/O Server?

A bug has been reported with sudo on AIX VIOS, see
http://www.gratisoft.us/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=498, where sudo
appears unable to change its uid or gid, despite being setuid root
(and apparently running with root privileges).

I don't have any experience with AIX VIOS so I'm hoping that someone
else might have an idea as to what the problem is.  From skimming
it appears that the security policy on VIOS is different from a
regular AIX server but I haven't been able to determine what the
actual effects are of the different security levels.
