I would suggest boiling the sugar in a little water to kill any nasties. I just
add some water to a Pyrex measuring cup containing 3/4C sugar, then toss in
microwave until it boils. I then add this to the fermenter and let it hang out
while I clean my bottles, to let the sugar distribute itself.

Sounds like you're asking for contamination. I'd let it hang out.
