I think you've got sudo configured to prompt for a password, but the
regression test is trying to use if from a context where there's no

Possible solutions:
 - if you have the sudo credential caching enabled without
tty_tickets, you could run "sudo whoami" or something to prepopulate
the cache.
 - temporarily add NOPASSWD: to the sudo config for the user running the test.

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
