Description of problem:
sudo logging truncates the username to 8 characters. We are using windows domain ids which are not fully logged, eg. nemmco\suzannew is shown in logs as nemmco\s.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log entries do not show whole user name.
Actual Results: Log entries do not show whole username, it is truncated at 8 characters.
We chose sudo instead of su because of the better audit trail, but this bug prevents having the full audit trail, thus is a security issue.
