[sudo-users] env_reset ignored under sudoers plugin?

Thanks Todd,

I've checked that, and the user doesn't have ALL.  In the POC I used, they just have access to one executable, /sbin/arping.  The output of 'sudo -l' in my first post is not abbreviated at all.

The output of sudo -l is the same on the standalone setup as is on the centralised, but the behaviour is different, so something more subtle than a simple misconfiguration is going on, I think.

If you give a user sudo ALL permissions they will be able to set arbitrary environment variables and use "sudo -E".  You can add the NOSETENV tag to the ALL keyword as follows:

    testuser somehost = NOSETENV: ALL
