Problems Collecting Extreme configs.

  I've recently started trying to collect configurations from
a Extreme switch. I've ran into problems, sorted some out, but
still have questions...

First off I'm currently runing 2.8b version of rancid.

  For this Extreme switch, I'm using telnet, adding autoenable, getting
loged in alright... but I keep getting hung up on the clipaging that we
like to keep enabled on these switches. If I disable clipaging, all goes
well, but I really hate to have to leave clipaging off permenently.

  I was asked/told that if I just issue a the command 'diable clipaging
session' before I issued the other commands, it should work. Well not
knowing rancid and/or expect well enough to figure out how to make this
hapen on my own. I decided to come and ask, if this issue has been
delt with already in a more recent revsion of rancid... and/or if somone
can point me in the right direction for dealing with the paging issue
on a session basis.

 We really don't want to permenetly disable paging on our Extreme switches
unless that is really our only option.

Please advise...
