[sudo-users] LDAPv Multiple sudoers_base lines do not work

I was able to make it work by manually upgrading sudo.  I really want to be able to make it work with the stock version however.  

If it is possible to do that I would like to know how.  

Thanks again!   Sorry I just forgot to include that info

The base in the secondary position, or the one that is read last linearly is the one that is read from.  I know that all the ldap entries work and sudo works just fine on the ldap side when the right base is queried, I just cannot get it to look in one, fail and look in the other base.
