+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1133657 +++
Description of problem:
As a result of ipa-client-install bug my machine had the following nsswitch entry:
# grep sudo /etc/nsswitch.conf
sudoers: files sss sss
This broke sudo completely, the sudo binary never finishes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. put "sudoers: files sss sss" into nsswitch.conf
2. sudo ls
sudo runs to completion
This is the backtrace I'm seeing:

Proposed patch for the most recent upstream version. I'll fix this in Fedora as soon as upstream accepts the patch or pushes a better fix.
