[rancid] Curious Cisco ASA problem

I'm running into some interesting behavior regarding my Cisco ASA 5520. The device is talking to my TACACS server for authentication just fine. Clogin doesn't want to finish all the way though. It's hanging at the enable prompt where all my other devices do not. Here's the output from the clogin:

rancid at kc-tacacs:~$ clogin kansascityASA5520
spawn telnet kansascityasa5520
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
spawn ssh -c 3des -x -l rancid kansascityasa5520
rancid at kansascityasa5520's password:
You are connected to:  kansascityASA5520.pop.local

Type help or '?' for a list of available commands.
kansascityASA5520> enable
Password: ********
Invalid password
Password: ********
Invalid password
Password: ********
Invalid password
Access denied.
Error: Check your Enable passwd


I gets connected just fine then drops to the unprivileged account.

I have tried to add a specific username and password for this device like this:

#add user kansascityASA5520* {user}
#add password kansascityASA5520* {password} {password}

But, that didn't work either.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
