Wish I knew, they execute fine from command line (on F5) and even from a single rancid-run.  And as Chris mentioned, it worked for a while and then stopped.  A few other users I have spoken to about the problem have removed those lines and not bothered with it anymore.  


How many devices are you backing up at a time?  Mine is set to PAR_COUNT=12; (rancid.conf)
