Paul, I've made the changes but on my N800 there isn't visudo in /sbin.
That was one of the first places I checked.  Did you install it manually? If
so, where did you get it (or did you compile it manually?)?

James, thanks for the suggestion!

which is what I was driving at, but that won't protect against errors
as visudo will also. Visudo is in /sbin on the device. It works fine.
