For some reason rancid-run is reporting in its logs that it is unable to
login to certain devices (MDS switches).  I can login to these devices
manually with clogin, but rancid-run continually fails.

log entry:
sdhq-mds-02-04.sege.local clogin error: Error: Couldn't login:

[rancid at light (~)]$ bin/clogin sdhq-mds-02-04.sege.local
spawn ssh -c 3des -x -l rancid sdhq-mds-02-04.sege.local

Any assistance in troubleshooting this would be nice.  Is there a debug mode
I can turn on somewhere?
