I've just downloaded & installed rancid 2.3.2a6

i'm running on redhat enterprise 4, with more-or-less current patches

i saw, and heeded, the note about patching expect on linux platforms.

    [root at dial expect-5.42]# diff exp_chan.c*
    < fcntl(esPtr->fdin, F_SETFL, O_NONBLOCK);

unfortunately, i get TIMEOUTs on a 4108gl (and also a 2824 i tried):

  [rancid at dial ~]$ /usr/local/pkg/rancid-2.3.2a6/bin/hlogin desktop-switch.internet2.edu -c "show version"
  spawn hpuifilter -- ssh -c 3des -x -l admin desktop-switch.internet2.edu
