I am troubleshooting a "End of run not found" message in the log. The 
device type is 6509 switch running IOS. When I run "clogin device-name" 
it works fine and puts me on the box. However when rancid runs, I get 
"End of run not found"

After reading through /opt/rancid/bin/rancid file, I discovered 
following piece of code. Can somebody help me understand this RegEx?
 if (/^(: +)?end$/) {
            $found_end = 1;

Is it looking for :end or something else? If it looks for ":end" on a 
line shouldn't regex be "/^:end$/"? Last few lines on my device config 
is as below.
ntp clock-period 17180035
ntp server xx.xx.xx.xx prefer
