I tried your suggestion re autoenable ...

ferret# less .cloginrc
add autoenable c55k-2 0
add password c55k-1  userpass enablepass
add password c55k-2  userpass enablepass
add password c55k-3 userpass enablepass

But, it's still doing the same thing , since the upgrade to 2.3.1
it works for the first cat (c55k-1) , then chokes on the second and third.

Trying to get all of the configs.
write(spawn_id=3): I/O error
    while executing
"send "exit\r""
    invoked from within
"expect -nobrace -re {^[^
^M *]*c55k2> \(enable\)} {
etc.. as previously advised..
