Hi Emmanuel

I have just tried this with the debian mirror version of rancid, and I have
exactly the same issue there, even with the patch applied.  I don’t even
know how to debug this problem.

Oops, sorry, on this box it's still sarge (Debian oldstable). The
version for etch is :

$ aptitude show rancid-core
Paquet : rancid-core
Version : 2.3.1-4

Anyway, you're using shruberry's source.

Yes, in the non-free section.

My usage of rancid is very limited: I have an empty ~root/.cloginrc,
thus no configuration. I only use the command-line options and use
{c,h}login in shell loops.

My advice would be first to restart from scratch : install Debian's
plain rancid on an etch box, apply the patch and then test hlogin
with an empty .cloginrc.
