IIRC a security update in sarge changed sudo's behaviour and that broke
many local scripts. We decided that the security threat addressed by the
update was basically zero and went back to the old version - finding &
fixing all the broken scripts was simply not worth the effort.

So an automatic security update _can_ break a working server.
