/etc/sudoers and /etc/hosts are unchanged from bo to hamm but the new
"sudo" did not accept the "hostname" (as in my lower-case output of the
hostname command):

	jkern   ludd=   

A "Host_Alias" spec is required to be in upper-case as "man sudoers"
confirmed.  Nevertheless, I changed "ludd" to "localhost" (in
lower-case) with no "Host_Alias" spec and it also worked:

	jkern   localhost= 

Thanks again.
