...Aaaand... success! I reverted to the sudo package from Slackware
13.0 and now shutdown is working (hooray for dependency-less Slackware
packages  ;-) )

I suppose it's too far off topic to ask for help in understanding what
changed between sudo "1.6.8p12" and "1.7.4p6" that would make my
existing configuration stop working? ;-)

I knew it was unlikely to by a Myth bug...

Now the main remaining issue is why it's suddenly setting the wakeup
time incorrectly.... the system upgrade seems to have made it "forget"
that the BIOS clock is in UTC... :)

Thanks so much, Rod!
