Good to know. No bug.

Ahh, in Tramp 2.6, sudo credentials are stored differently. From the
Tramp manual:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
   For the methods ‘doas’, ‘sudo’ and ‘sudoedit’ the password of the
user requesting the connection is needed, and not the password of the
target user.  If these connections happen on the local host, an entry
with the local user and local host is used:

     machine HOST port sudo login USER password secret
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Before 2.6, the credentials were stored for user "root", which is
wrong. Likely, you were hit by this.
