In a fit of maintenance, I took one of my RANCID systems from:
expect-5.43.0_3 (-D WITHOUT_X11) port
and immediately went from a perfectly happy RANCID installation to
one that can't get through a group of 500 or so devices without
getting hung randomly. I tried taking out WITHOUT_X11, I tried all
sorts of port deinstalls, reinstalls, you name it. I tried the
expect patch. Nothing worked. Finally I manually tweaked my ports
tree to install the tcl-8.4.13_1,1 port instead, and my problems
vanished (so far... 24 hours and counting).
Mind the gap....
