rvmsudo passenger-status returns:
sudo: passenger-status: command not found

Ubuntu 12.04 sudoer's file contains:
Defaults env_reset
Defaults secure_path="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin"

Commenting out the secure_path line allows it to run correctly.

RVM can't go messing with sudoers. What does

rvmsudo /full/path/to/passenger-status

Do? Correct behaviour?

I'll consider a patch that looks up RVM's gem path internally.

@richo I was thinking about:

if grep -E '^[[:space:]]*Defaults[[:space:]]+secure_path=' >/dev/null
then sudo_args+=("/usr/bin/env")

just before the eval line https://github.com/wayneeseguin/rvm/blob/master/binscripts/rvmsudo#L34

maybe with:

rvm_warn "Warning: secure_path found in /etc/sudoers, falling back to call via /usr/bin/env, this is known to break rules from /etc/sudoers"

Sounds good, but I would add a check for __rvm_secure_level first and stub it out with __rvm_secure_level() { return 0 } for now, I have an idea for how a user can lock this down.

I can hack on it a bit tonight.

as there is easy workaround for this (commenting out secure_path) - there is no hurry with a fix
