What platform are you using, and what version of RANCID?  Also, read the
release notes in RANCID about how some versions of Expect need to be patched.

Have you tried "rancid -d" to get debug output?

Sometimes this error means rancid didn't find the last command ("exit"), but
in your case, it's there at the end of the output:

  Connection closed by foreign host.

That's not the problem - you'll note that "show running-config" was
also sent and recognized.  rancid is smart enough to use whichever one
