Bug#1162: sudo: syslog and hostname problems

Package: sudo
Version: 1.3.1pl4-1

- sudo reports warnings and normal log messages using the LOCAL2 syslog
  facility.  IMHO it should use the AUTH facility or it should use a log
  file (/var/log/sudo.log).

- sudo only works if you use short hostnames in the /etc/sudoers file
  (I'm using a short hostname for my local PC). IMHO it should be possible
  to use either long or short hostnames.
