The latest update to sudo (sudo-1.7.2p1-14.el5_8.2) breaks postgresql.


It might break other services that rely on access to /etc/nsswitch.conf
too. Assuming you have a "sudoers" line in /etc/nsswitch.conf that file
will be recreated with incorrect file permissions.

After having had issues with selinux permissions on that particular file
in two previous updates, this time it's the regular file permissions
that will break access to /etc/nsswitch.conf for at least postgresql.
