Ugo and I worked on it for a bit, then Christmas got in the way.  Lately 
someone else got in touch about the same issue, so I hope to take another 
look at it again shortly and try and get to the bottom of it.

What puzzles me is that I don't have this problem, and haven't been able 
to reproduce it to effectively test!  Which makes me worry that it is an 
expect bug or something obscure like that ...

Viktor, please send me privately the output from the following:

perl -v
expect -v

and I might be in touch with more questions.
