That means that augeas can't parse it.  Look under
"/augeas/files/etc/sudoers/" to see why, although I've gotta say
that Augeas' parse errors are generally entirely unhelpful:

augtool> ls /augeas/files/etc/sudoers/error/
pos = 2587
message = Short iteration

It's the one thing I don't like about it.  At least give me a line
number.  :(


They say:  "The first AIs will be built by the military as weapons."
And I'm thinking:  "Does it even occur to you to try for something
other than the default outcome?" -- http://shorl.com/tydruhedufogre
