Default Latest sudo update for 5.8 breaks postgresql

Hello,

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

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=846631

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.

Regards,
Leonard.

I should have mentioned that there's an easy fix if the package got
installed:

# chmod 644 /etc/nsswitch.conf

should get things going again.

Leonard.
