my cat5k has a sup1, which can not be upgraded.  well, it could be
upgraded if i had a 16meg 72-pin simm for it...but i'm reluctant to
go buy one.

anyway, it's catOS version does not support AAA authorization, ie:
"auto-enable" or the "priv-lvl" AV pair.

if anyone has such a CatOS box to test the patch below, it would be
helpful.  the person who reported the problem has not replied.
