Just my .02, any vendor who sells a product that cannot keep up with a
telnet session should be re-evaluated and phased out.  I have been using
rancid for 6 months to a year on all types of equipment and have not had
any problems.

What vendor is feeding you that line of bull?

Say you are trying to do some debugging & want to catch the output
of some command as often as possible; is the vendor telling you
that you should not be doing this?  Bogus...

There is a for loop in run_commands; that would be the place to put
a sleep.
