Summary and Info:
I, for one, think it is annoying that scripts can fail simply because you went to the bathroom or something like that.
And editing passwd_timeout in the sudoers file seems a bit too much.
Could you have sudo execute with "-T 0" parameter?

Steps to Reproduce:
Do anything that triggers run_pacman (such as using --syncdeps with a package where you are missing something)
Wait 5 minutes.
See the thing fail.
This task depends upon

Why not just set a passwd_timeout that applies specifically to the pacman command?
