No. sudo is normally not installed at all.

OK. Please add 'set -x' lines in the following scripts before you get to the 
user setup step:
- /usr/bin/user-setup-ask
- /usr/bin/user-setup-apply

And send the resulting syslog after the installation completes (you need to 
proceed at least to the "install completed, get ready for reboot" dialog).
