It's been a while since I've done something like this, but it seems like 
it might work for you:

You can setup "line vty 4" without the autocommand and only allow rancid 
to login on that vty (either by access-class or special password, or 
using rotary and using a special telnet port)


There are probably other options.  You would need to figure out what the 
best of different hackish ways to fix it would be.
