(for future edification)

This got me closer.  The other part of the issue is that the banner
message on a number of our switches contains # characters, so clogin
would see those characters, assume it had reached the enabled state and
start firing commands before the device was ready to accept them.

Something else I found in this process: version 6.3(4)120 of the PIX
code has a bug where the enable password can only be blank.  This also
causes a problem.
