[sudo-workers] use_pty option is broken

I've updated the description of use_pty to better match the current
behavior and added a note to the UPGRADE file about the changes.

The reason the forker script used to produce no input was because
the other side of the pipe was closed when sudo exited.  Thus the
ping commands would have been killed due to a broken pipe.  It is
a somewhat special case.


In the future I may add options for more fine-grained control over
logging of the standard input, output and error.
