flogin does work with telnet, but it's REALLY slow. It times out if I
try and use SSH. Just to login and get to an enable prompt seems to take
about 20 seconds.

# Clogin
time /usr/libexec/rancid/clogin -c "show chassis;" foundry-needy.domain.com
7.7 seconds

# flogin
time /usr/libexec/rancid/flogin -c "show chassis;" foundry-needy.domain.com
43.2 seconds!!!

Both using (what I think is) the same ~/.cloginrc
