Hi Todd,

I found regression in sudo behavior, It's reproducible on recent sudo-1.8.18b2.

When you have a script which refers to non existing interpreter like:

$ cat test.sh
#useless script

$ chmod u+x test.sh

Sudo executes this command and it should fail.

$ sudo ./test.sh

But Sudo returns 0.
