If I would in charge of a quick and dirt solution I would build a
script executed via cron (or periodic) to check the disk space, and to
disable the sudo logging once a threshold is reached. At the same
time, send an email to the sysadmin to notify the problem.
Another way could be to let sudo log to a different device, maybe via a link?

Of course, as yuo already pointed out, the above call for a security problem...
