It seems like the exit that gets sent is not showing up in the dlogin
output.  drancid looks for the prompt followed by the word exit to set
the clean_run variable.

It looks like this in my output:
#eConnection closed by foreign host.

the xit is missing between the e and Connection.  This is my best guess
at the moment.  I'll let you know if I get any closer to fixing it.
