Hmm.  I see that that is now the installed default, but of
course (by design) the fact that it has changed in this
significant way is not automatically reflected in the
already-in-use sudoers file.  I think that this could usefully
have been flagged in UPDATING.  I also prefer my fix (reverting
the default sense of env_reset): I know that I'm not going to
try to subvert any of my root processes by fiddling with LD_PATH
or whatever paranoia has produced this change.  Sudoers(5) is too
complicated as it is, with too many options.
