sudo is spitting error on invocation: "no talloc stackframe at ../source3/param/loadparm.c:4864, leaking memory"

sudo (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

After updating from 13.10 64-bit to 14.04 64-bit,
every time sudo <command> is issued,
message appears:
"no talloc stackframe at ../source3/param/loadparm.c:4864, leaking memory"

sudo seems to be working, but message is unsettling and should not appear if everything is ok...
Since it is sudo,
I flag it as security problem , because memory leaking in a program that lead to memory escalation is not pleasant (or at least reporting it as such).
