The version of sudo you are running is almost 5 years old so I
would recommend upgrading to the latest.  Upgrading the sudo package
will not alter your existing sudoers configuration file.

I don't recognize the specific problem you are having, but if the
problem persists with the latest version of sudo it will be easier
to debug.
