[sudo-users] security bug -- sudo undefines functions in environment

I have been worrying about this: it does seem to me that, so long as the function-stripping thing works and env_reset (or equivalent) is set, things are probably not worse than they were already, which is clearly quite bad enough.  Does anyone have any other news about this? (with regards to sudo specifically, I mean, not bash, and probably other Unix shells, in general, which is a security catastrophe we've all been ignoring for far too long I think).
