Is there a way to get more detailed logs out of rancid-run?

I was trying to edit the jrancid file to add "show log messages" and now I
have rancid in a state where it won't run.  I have tried restoring
everything back to where I started but it doesn't seem to work.  Rancid-run
now just hangs when running it manually.

I have tried setting all the devices down in router.db, but it still tries
to access all the routers for some reason.  When I run it, I get this in my

Rancid:~ $ ps -A | grep rancid
  237  p0  S+     0:00.02 /bin/sh /opt/local/bin/rancid-run
  238  p0  S+     0:00.01 /bin/sh /opt/local/bin/rancid-run

  408  p1  R+     0:00.00 grep rancid
Rancid:~ $

And this for logs:

Rancid:~ $ cat /opt/local/var/rancid/logs/jrouters.20080414.151921
starting: Mon Apr 14 15:19:21 EDT 2008

Trying to get all of the configs.
Rancid:~ $

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
