[rancid] changes in <group> routers

Hi All

I've just upgraded our rancid box from Debian Etch to Lenny (rather late I know, but hey).

Anyway, after the upgrade, I ran a manual rancid-run on a specific firewall, and all seemed ok.

What I did notice was that there was an email generated for each group stating a list of routers who's status had changed to down, the list, however, consisted of no routers.

I thought this was maybe an oddity as it was the first run of rancid since the update, so ignored it.

Now, after it's scheduled run, I get the email again.

Literally the entire contents of the email is:

"Routers changed to down:"

Does anyone have any ideas why seemingly the upgrade to Lenny could have caused this?

Out of interest, i'm using a slightly older version of rancid, as I've found it a pain on our systems to get the latest version up and running, but have not encountered this issue at all on our older etch system.

If anyone has any ideas what could be causing this, and how we could fix it to stop generating these "blank" emails, it would be much appreciated
