Nope.  I've got a pretty vanilla install. According to my logs:
Trying to get all of the configs.
IP.ADDR nslogin error: Error: unknown connection method: telnet
IP.ADDR: missed cmd(s): cat /etc/ns.conf,get log setting
IP.ADDR: End of run not found                              

If I take the 2.3.1 version of nlogin, and apply Joshua's patch, I can 
at least run nlogin hostname and it will login properly,
but then apparently rancid-fe is thinking that the netscreen is a netscaler
