[rancid] Problem getting config from Cisco ASA firewalls

My rancid installation works perfectly for Cisco Catalyst switches and other
stuff too.. but for the Cisco ASA firewalls it fails.. In the logs, I get
the "clogin error: Error: TIMEOUT reached" error.

.cloginrc for a particular FW looks like:

add password        {exec_pass} {enable_pass}
add method          telnet
add autoenable      {1}

I've also tried replacing IP-address with DNS hostname or just using a
wildcard star... no difference. When I telnet directly from the server to
the firewall, the sequence looks like:

*[me at LinuxSrv ~]$ telnet
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.*

*User Access Verification*
*Password: <TYPING PASSWD>*

*Type help or '?' for a list of available commands.
*Password: *******

Any ideas?
