[rancid] cannot "exit" when using clogin

I have a Cisco 2811 (show ver below) that I can execute "telnet" from
the command line, connect, authenticate, and "exit" without problems.
When I use clogin to connect to this device it authenticates fine, and
I can execute commands on the router. However when I issue an "exit"
the system does not disconnect. This is causing rancid to hang on this
device. I have several Cisco routers/switches that are not a problem,
only this unit.

How do I resolve this?

Connected to 2811.foo.com.
