I have 8 systems I just updated to sudo 1.9.8-1 and all are segfaulting when running sudo and sssd.

I'm having trouble getting a core dump though. Probably because its a SUID binary.

I am using sssd, removing "sudoers: files sss" from /etc/nsswitch.conf works around the issue.

Steps to reproduce:
Configure sssd
Add "sudoers: files sss" to /etc/nsswitch.conf
Run sudo
Get segfault

This task depends upon

I get the same error in 1.9.8-2 as well.

I tested the fix in 1.9.8-2 with the same result

I can confirm my desktop and laptop both exhibit the same. Running sssd against FreeIPA.

sudo 1.9.8-2
sssd 2.5.2-1
linux-lts 5.10.64-1
plasma-desktop 5.22.5-1

Can provide further info if needed.
