I´ve seen alot of inputs, but the problem remains. The Revisions continue to
increase randomly because of Vlan terminal Output. I don´t know how to solve

I´ve tried to edit some rancid files and comment the show vlan portion of
the script, but there´s 2 or 3 files with vlan settings, and I´m afraid of
screw up Rancid afterwords...

Does anybody know of any other solution for terminal width in cisco routers?
Any more suggestions?

But the best way would be to give RANCID a way to let the user easily
change the commands sent to the device, so they could put in
"terminal width <whatever>" if it worked for them.  The inability
to customize RANCID to a site without hand-patching is RANCID's
Achilles heel.
