Looks like it could be another case of a router being too eager to
drop the tcp session and not echoing back the 'quit' rancid sends
it first.

Rancid sends a 'quit' and then the router should echo that back &
then close the tcp session (it should wait for the output to drain
before doing the final tcp close).  Some routers have bugs and
don't do this.

I know we had to do a fair amount of expect goo to work around this
for the extreme (in xrancid).
