[rancid] New device type

It sounds like it's not finding an end-of-configuration delimiter. I'm not
familiar with the device type, but for Cisco devices, it usually looks for
the keyword "end" by itself at the end of "show run" to determine whether
or not it has successfully pulled the configuration. Other device types
sometimes look for more than 5 lines of config, etc. Without knowing more
about the configuration file format, I can't say which method (if either)
would work for your situation.
