Hey there,
                In your .cloginrc file do you have autoenable set to 1 by chance?  It looks like you are getting to the operator level prompt but are not into the full manager level prompt.  There is also a wonderful issue with the 4100 series that the switch does not seem to handle the privalege elevation handed too it by the Radius server, so we've had to pull the individual switches out via configuration like this:

add user xx.xx.xx.xx             rancid
add password xx.xx.xx.xx         {XXXXXXX}      {XXXXXXX}
add autoenable xx.xx.xx.xx        0
add userprompt xx.xx.xx.xx       {"Please Enter Login Name:"}
add passprompt xx.xx.xx.xx       {"Please Enter Password:"}

                It looks like you are timing out while waiting on the # prompt to appear.

Subject: [rancid] Hlogin & Timeout


When trying to use hlogin I get timeouts when trying to login to the enable prompt. I thought I was running version 2.3.2a10 but I guess my upgrade didn't work as expected.

-bash-3.2$ hlogin HP5308-B6-1.pelco.org
spawn hpuifilter -- ssh -c 3des -x -l user hp5308-b6-1.pelco.org
Switch - DO NOT LOGIN.

I found a patch from a google search which didn't work for me.
