Does it give this error without pam_ssh_agent_auth in the Pam stack? If not, this might be better posted on my bug tracker on SourceForge than here.

$ sudo su -m

# id
uid=0(root) gid=0(wheel) groups=0(wheel),5(operator)

Running FreeBSD 9.x with sudo 1.8.7, pam_ssh_agent_auth, and LDAP

My suspicion is that this is part of either pam_ssh_agent_auth or our
LDAP setup, but I'm hoping that someone here can point me in a
direction.  Google doesn't show anyone else having this error, and
there's nothing in the man page.
