I hate that problem, too. But here's the solution:
1. Check the timestamp sudo reports (will look something like below).
sudo: timestamp too far in the future: Jun 17 08:17:55 2006
2. Use Adjust Date & Time to set the date/time to the sudo timestamp or later.
3. Execute the 'sudo -k' command. (Clears the timestamp).
4. Use Adjust Date & Time to set the date/time back to the correct values.

I had that last year on Gutsy.
It happened because i think my clock in my BIOS was set either too far back or too far forward.
