[rancid] Rancid hanging

I have been using Rancid for over a year now, and just yesterday I attempted
to migrate over to a newly built system.  Everything seemed to be working
okay, clogin worked, and when I began rancid-run everything appeared to
start off okay, but the problem is that rancid-run never finished.

I left it running for about 16 hours, but it never produced any additional
output to the logfile other than "Trying to get all of the configs.".  The
configs directory did produce device.new files, all with sizes of what I
would expect for the configs, but that was it.

Can anyone provide any feedback on how to troubleshoot this?  As stated,
there is nothing in the logs generated indicating why it is hanging.
