Now that I think about it, this would occur only after "timestamp_timeout"
has expired and 'sudo' is about to prompt for the password.

No, it does also happen when "timestamp_timeout" has not yet expired.
It happened again and when I restarted the replacement of the package
pkg_rr was working on when it failed, it did not ask for authentication.

Hi John,

Do you use NetBSD? If I remember correctly, sudo uses openpam implementation on this platform. Maybe your problem could come from PAM...? By saying that, I realize that our openpam package is outdated since the 20190224 tag is now available.
