[rancid] Debugging Logins for netscreen and procurve switches

No luck.

When using hlogin, I get the below even though hpui is in the same directory,:

rancid at truck:~/bin$ hlogin -c "show run"
spawn hpuifilter -- ssh -c  -x -l LOGIN

Error: ssh failed: couldn't execute "hpuifilter": no such file or directory

Oddly enough when I get the error in the log even though it's defined as an HP switch, the log references clogin.

The HPs are either HPs or foundry OEMs, hlogin or flogin, respectively.  this
one looks like an hp; try testing with hlogin.
