Description of problem:
The man page for sudo-1.6.4-0.7x.2 contains a typo that lists the wrong 
environment variable.  The paragraph that documents the "editor" variable reads:

       editor      A colon (':') separated list of editors
                   allowed to be used with visudo.  visudo will
                   choose the editor that matches the user's USER
                   environment variable.....

Here, I believe the variable USER should be EDITOR.
