[rancid] Explain email error

I have had quite a time getting my HP Procurve switches to work with rancid. Long story short, this test works:
/usr/lib/rancid/bin/hlogin -f /var/lib/rancid/.cloginrc <device>
I get into the devices from the cli.
When I just let rancid contact the devices on its own, then I get this email, which makes me think there is a permissions error (?):
The following routers have not been successfully contacted for
more than 24 hours.
-rw-r----- 1 rancid rancid 0 Sep 27 10:09 184.108.40.206
On the other hand, when I look in my logs, the message is simply that rancid couldn't login.
(?!?!) clogin error: Error: Couldn't login
<device>: missed cmd(s): show stack,show module,show flash,show version,show system-information,write term,show system information
This is the eternal issue! Everytime I think I've got it: boom! Failure
