Just recently a new sudo entered Wheezy Testing and it changed the
behavior of secure_path.  See Bug#639841 for details.  But it means
that you need to add this line too:

  Defaults secure_path="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin"

In addition to the other line:

  username ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL

Your PATH problem in Wheezy/Sid is the same thing.  See Bug#639841.
Add the secure_path line above and it will work for you again.
