[rancid] Automatic RedBack backup

Hey all!

I'm trying to use RANCID for backing up the configuration of a few Red 
Back SE800 routers. For Cisco routers I already have a working mechanism 
in place which basically tail -f's a syslog file, when it find a 
"Configured from console by ..." message it executes rancid to log in to 
the router and pull out the configuration.
My problem with Red Back is that they just won't syslog when there has 
been a configuration change and thus I don't know when to execute the 
backup script.
Does anyone know of any secret knobs or other way for me to accomplish this?
