I built a CD based on Etch (everything here is Etch, except live-helper).
The "official" build (from
  as far as I remember) has the same problem, too. Can anyone confirm this?

Of course, I'd prefer a fixed nosudo option. But will this fix be 
backported to Etch?
Otherwise, I'll have to use some script as suggested by James Barrett. 
By the way: is it OK to simply modify /etc/sudoers with a script at 
runtime or do I have to manually use visudo as stated in the comments at 
the top  of that file?
