I understand it's not nice to keep having to add -disable flags on every new reprotest release, sorry about that.

Does it work if you give --vary=domain_host.use_sudo=1? (I think it should, if you have root inside the chroot.)

Are you running reprotest on a developer machine or a CI platform or something? If I understood more about how people expect to use reprotest, maybe I could make these newer features smoother to use. My motivation for defaulting use_sudo to 0, was to allow non-root users to "try it out". But perhaps I should just default it to 1, if it causes problems for most people.
