Yes, thank You, Ralph. Indeed, I forgot about that, as I'm usually not 
changing that. IMHO it's nevertheless a bad concept those removed 
commands are still stored inside this file. In my case, the problem was 
my sudo password, which I accidently typed in because sudo timeout had 
not yet been reached.

Kind regards
