Figured it out... I also have a netgroup rule, which allows all commands,
but requires a password.  This user happens to be in that netgroup.  For
this application, it's not a problem to remove that user from the netgroup.

I swear I was commenting that rule out during testing, but I guess not.

Anyway, this is still a minor bug, don't you think?
